Minorities Affairs Minister Avishai Braverman on Wednesday stated that if the Netanyahu government did not seriously pursue peace negotiations that the Labor party should leave the coalition.

"If there are no real negotiations for peace, we won't remain in the government," Braverman wrote in a letter to the Labor Party's steering committee, requesting an official party position regarding its stance towards the stalled peace negotiations.

He continued, currently the Labor Party stands at the edge of an abyss. It is deteriorating not only because of the lack of leadership from the party chairman [Ehud Barak], but also because we are not disposed to present the public an alternative to the line taken by Netanyahu."
