President Shimon Peres on Wednesday said that a nation "needs a majority to do the right thing."

Speaking at the fifth Israeli Presidential Conference in Jerusalem to a standing ovation, he added, however, that "a minority can do the wrong thing."

"Leaders today should not lead, they should agree to be lead by the people," Peres stated. He added that a leader has to "enhance the capacity of the people to express their deep worries."
