As expected, Ehud Barak on Thursday announced that his Labor party would not endorse any candidate for prime minister and would opt instead to head for the opposition. "The electorate has given the word," Barak said at the opening of a Labor faction meeting. "The picture is complicated and disturbing when Israel Beiteinu is the one to recommend who Israel's prime minister will be. We are left with only one option, and that is to decide not to recommend anyone for the premiership." Labor representatives are set to convey the party's decision to President Shimon Peres during the day.
