Former prime minister Ehud Barak, after meeting with new Labor Chairman Amir Peretz, on Thursday, expressed his commitment to stay in the Labor Party. In spite of his public statement, "Shimon [Peres] left, I'm staying," sources close to Barak noted that the extended duration of the meetings might serve as indication of the ideological chasm between Peretz and the former prime minister. Israel Radio reported that Barak, who is not currently a Knesset member, established a campaign staff in order to secure his position in the party. Peretz's staff reported that the meeting between the current and former Labor leaders proceeded well, and they expected the two to meet again in the coming days.
