Gil Hoffman continues his series on new candidates for Knesset by interviewing Meretz candidate Mehereta Baruch-Ron. She tells her story of how she came to Israel as a child from Ethiopia without knowing how to read or write, became a contestant on the reality show The Ambassador, and served as deputy mayor of Tel Aviv. Gil asks her whether Meretz is an extremist party. He also gives listeners an insider’s look behind the scenes of Tuesday’s Likud primary.
