Amir Peretz, Formerly of Labor, Embraces Tzipi

Amir Peretz, former Histadrut union chief and former Defense Minister, is now a former member of the Avoda (Labor) party. He is moving over to the Movement (HaTnuah) party of Tzipi Livni (former head of Kadima, and former Foreign Minister).

Also moving over to Livni’s party is former general Elazar Stern. Stern announced on the radio that he fully supports the two-state solution. Although formerly considered center, his embrace of the two-state solution puts him squarely on the left.

Meanwhile, there are now plenty of new former Kadima members. Dalia Itzik announced her retirement from politics, and Roni Bar-On has resigned.

Dalia Itzik also implied that former PM Ehud Olmert would not be running this time around, after all the speculation that he might. For herself, Itzik has said, “Presidential hope is not dead.”

Exciting stuff.
