Defense Minister and Labor leader Ehud Barak met President Shimon Peres on Sunday morning and the two were said to have discussed Barak's next move in the wake of Tzipi Livni's Kadima primary victory, Army Radio reported. Barak, who, aides said, may prefer to form a national emergency government with the Likud, met on Saturday night at the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv with opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu urged Barak to help initiate a new general election rather than join Livni's government.
