Labor chairman Ehud Barak suffered a blow on Sunday when the Tel Aviv District Court ruled that the party must elect new institutions by the end of June. Barak's predecessor, MK Amir Peretz, appealed to the court after Barak refused to implement the decisions of Labor's internal legal bodies refused to initiate the election. Peretz hopes to use the new Labor institutions to gain more power in the party and use it to try to oust Barak ahead of the next general election.
