Barak: Elections are serious, are not a reality TV show

Ehud Barak emphasized Wednesday that elections in Israel are more important than voting for characters on a reality television show, speaking at an event officially kicking off his Independence Party's first-ever campaign season.
Barak noted that a recent poll showed a five percent jump in his party's election standings, a trend he said he believes will continue.
Barak added that he is campaigning "so that I can continue to have influence in the next government as defense minister," and so that the other Independence MKs can also continue their work in a place of influence.
