Coalition Deputy Chairman MK Yoel Hasson (Kadima) on Sunday praised Labor chairman Ehud Barak for displaying "national responsibility" and preventing unnecessary elections by deciding to remain in the coalition. "He put the good of country above the good of his own political interests as he promised," he said. Hasson went on to say that the time was right to bring UTJ into the government and "stabilize the coalition politically."
