Opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu said on Monday that he was not worried about the possibility that he could run up against former prime minister Ehud Barak in the next elections. Netanyahu, who lost to Barak in the 1999 general elections, reiterated that he did not fear a re-run of events. "I am not afraid of competing against Barak, Ami Ayalon, Ophir Paz-Pines, Danny Yatom or Amir Peretz," said Netanyahu.

"The Likud's main objective is to return the hundreds of thousands of voters who went along with [former prime minister Ariel] Sharon and voted for Kadima," said the chairman's office. "The differences between the candidates are so vast that Netanyahu is convinced he will win the elections," added his office.
