Barak appoints negotiation team for would-be coalition talks

Labor head Ehud Barak on Sunday appointed a negotiation team ahead of Tuesday's decisive convention on beginning talks with the Likud about forming a national-unity government. The team includes Histadrut Labor Federation head Ofer Eini, Agriculture Minister Shalom Simhon, and attorney Alon Gellert, who served as chief legal counsel of the Prime Minister's Office under Barak. At the convention, the team will present a list of Labor's demands for would-be coalition negotiations.
