Rebellion Against Peretz in Labor??

Amir Peretz Rallying Forces Ahead of Crucial Sunday Vote

Report: Labor Party Might Split in Two

Labor MKs May Rebel Against Peretz


Labor Knesset member Matan Vilnai Saturday labeled party chairman Amir Peretz a “megalomaniac,” and several party MKs may be planning to bolt the party, according to media reports.

An open rebellion may depend on Sunday’s party central committee meeting on whether to let Peretz choose the ministers or to let the committee choose them. Among those who favor giving the power to the committee is Ophir Paz, who said Saturday night he accepted Peretz’s offer to be Minister of Culture and Sport with responsibility for Jerusalem affairs.
