MK Amir Peretz discussed Thursday his decision to leave the Labor Party in a press conference in which he announced he was joining Hatnua Party, chaired by Tzipi Livni.
Peretz stated that he was no longer sharing the same views with his party members. "What were they mad about? That I was talking about peace? I really think that if we don’t find a resolution to political issues, there won't be any social justice," Peretz said. (Yuval Karni, Gilad Morag)
