Barak: Olmert must step down as prime minister 'soon'

"We're not coming to kadima with a stop watch," Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday in a press conference, during which he insisted that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert step aside as prime minister. "This has to happen soon, and I mean soon," he said, adding, however, that Labor "must not become involved in internal processes in Kadima."
