MK Amir Peretz (Labor) spoke to the leaders of all the parties in the center and Left this weekend –  Labor chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich, Yesh Atid's Yair Lapid, Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz and Meretz chairwoman Zehava Galon – about his plan to take down Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

The "Peretz Plan" is for the four parties to plan to commit to recommending whichever of them gets the most votes to President Shimon Peres, as the next prime minister. Peretz posited that the left-wing and centrist parties are likely to get more seats in the next Knesset if they run separately, and not as a bloc.

"We need to cooperate, because Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman could bring Israel five more lost, frozen years in social and diplomatic areas, and the erosion of diplomatic values," Peretz stated. "This is the time for national responsibility. We must do everything to create a common denominator that will bring agreements and better the country's future."
