Defense Minister Ehud Barak welcomed Noam Schalit's decision to run for the Labor Party list, Channel 10 news reported Monday.

"Any force that enters politics is welcomed," the defense minister said after a short pause. "Israeli society is full of creative powers."

Barak was chair of the Labor Party before splitting last year to form his own Independence Party with four other MKs.
