NDP convention: Israel-Hamas conflict debate, leadership review on agenda – National

Several emergency resolutions that address the Middle East conflict condemn the attacks by Hamas militants, while one calls for a ceasefire in Gaza.

At the last convention held in April of that year, 87 per cent of delegates voted against triggering a leadership race.
