Ehud Barak is asking for permission to split the Labour Party and for recognition of his new Party of four seats. He complains Labour Party has moved too far left. He says his new Party will be centric, Hey I thought that’s where Kadima says they are. Perhaps Barak’s new party will join Kadima in the next election cycle.
If he gets the required approval, the coalition will be reduced from 75 seats to 64 seats. Labour got five cabinet posts for their 15 seats. How many will they get for their four seats? Its time to invite the National Union Party which has four seats into the coalition.
No doubt, Labour’s breakup strengthens Israel Beiteinu’s position in the Coalition.
