Labor MK Matan Vilna'i supported on Thursday the decision to try and bring Shimon Peres back to the Labor Party. "I offer Peres to erase the problems of the past and to comeback in return for a promise to be number two in the party, said Vilna'i. According to Army Radio, Ma'ariv reported Thursday morning that Labor Chairman Amir Peretz contacted Peres over the past few days with the request that he "return home - to Labor." Rachel Turjeman, a close aide of Peretz, met with Peres yesterday, according to the report, and promised him "half the kingdom" if he were to return. Peres apparently decided to reject the offer.
