Barak on resigning Paz-Pines: 'No one is irreplaceable'

Barak about MK Ophir Paz

At a Labor party gathering Thursday evening, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said of MK Ophir Paz-Pines that "of course I would rather have seen him stay, but no one is irreplaceable." Paz-Pines, who announced his resignation earlier on Thursday, was one of four 'rebel' Labor MKs, along with Eitan Cabel, Yuli Tamir, and Amir Peretz, who have threatened to quit the Labor party in recent months.
