Report: Peretz likely to go for finance portfolio

Sources close to Defense Minister Amir Peretz speculated Sunday morning that the defense minister would turn his attentions toward the finance portfolio "when the political arena calms down," Army Radio reported. Peretz said over the weekend that he planned to remain defense minister in order to rebuild the IDF, but was quoted Friday as saying that "a day will [likely] come when I decide to occupy myself in other ways."
