Outgoing Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Wednesday characterized the Israeli elections as a victory for the social justice movement, which he admitted had been long ignored by the government he was a part of.

Speaking to CNN, Barak said "I think that what we call the social protest - the people who went in hundreds of thousands to the streets last year, and were basically ignored by the government, which I am a part of - they came to the envelopes to say, for us, we want our share of what happens to Israel. It was telling the government: There is a limit to what you can expect of us."
