Barak blasts Peretz for excluding him and Peres

Former prime minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday that Labor Party Chairman Amir Peretz should have found a way to incorporate him and Vice Premier Shimon Peres into the party's leadership. According to Barak, the issue was already "behind him," but it was not still too late to "act in the right way." Barak added that he didn't run in the Labor primaries since the current leader, Amir Peretz, was "inappropriate," Israel Radio reported.
