Yachimovich declares support for Barak in primary

MK Shelly Yachimovich declared her support for Ehud Barak for Tuesday's Labor primary. In a letter to Labor activists, Yachimovich claimed that Barak's rival Ami Ayalon was inexperienced. Yachimovich said she believed the next general election would be against the Likud and "Barak has a higher chance of winning." "Ami's political experience - a year as an MK, is not sufficient preparation for this obstacle-ridden path," she added.
