Labor Party chairman Amir Peretz assailed Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as a "monarch" heading a one-man party in an interview with The Jerusalem Post on Sunday.
"I am not just a party of one man. I do not have the privileges like Sharon, to enter a room by myself and choose my party list," said Peretz.
"And I would not want to be. I think it is a great danger, and a sign of a deteriorating democracy."
