Former minority affairs minister Avishay Braverman on Wednesday called the move by Defense Minister Ehud Barak and his allies to leave the Labor Party "a knockout to the peace process."

"Barak and [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu made [Foreign Minister Avigdor] Lieberman de facto prime minister of israel," said Braverman. "This was an impeachment of Israeli democracy," he added.

"The gov't is now dependent on Lieberman and his friends. It has no legitimacy in the world or in Israel," Braverman said.
