Former Labor chairman Shimon Peres is close to making a decision to leave Labor for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's new Kadima party, sources close to Peres and Sharon said on Sunday night. Sharon spoke to Peres more than once on Sunday and offered him to return to his cabinet post of vice premier with additional responsibility over negotiations with the Palestinians and the peace process. If Peres accepts the deal, he would not run for the next Knesset, ending a record-long tenure in the parliament that goes back to 1959.
