Yariv Openheimer on Thursday endorsed MK Amir Peretz in the race for the Labor party's top leadership position. Oppenheimer noted that he was endorsing Peretz in his capacity as a member for the Labor party and not as the Peace Now secretary-general.

Openheimer said in a statement: "I've decided to support Amir Peretz for the Labor Party leadership, because of his strong devotion to the path of peace and the possibility to connect that goal with new constituencies."

He added, "Amir Peretz is the only candidate that can bring a clear political line together with a social policy, constituting an alternative to the parties of the right and center."
