October 15, 2010 06:34

Four Labor MKs on Thursday praised Welfare and Social Services Minister Isaac Herzog's announcement that he intends to challenge Defense Minister Ehud Barak for leadership of the party, but added that Herzog should first resign from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's government.

In a statement released shortly after Herzog's announcement, MKs Amir Pertz, Eitan Cabel, Daniel Ben-Simon and Raleb Majadele said that in order to be taken seriously by Barak, Herzog's announcement must be accompanied by "meaningful leadership actions."

"The first step is the Labor Party's departure from the government and Herzog personally resigning from the government," said the ministers.
