Labor Chairman Amir Peretz reiterated his opposition on Thursday to creating an alternative government with 61 MKs. In an interview with Army Radio Peretz said that he would be able to receive the post of prime minister "on a silver platter," but preferred not to be involved in what he called "political bartering." "I could have been prime minister today. Two weeks ago I could have been in a situation in which I was assembling a government. I think that assembling a government in the name of political survival is a serious detriment to Israel.
