Barlev appears to confirm run for Labor leadership

Former minister Omer Barlev appears to confirm he is heading toward a run for the leadership of the Labor party, after widespread speculation on the issue.

Barlev walked away from politics after being placed ninth on Labor’s Knesset slate, which only managed four seats in the 2022 election, and has been spending his time making dough as CEO of Angel Bakery.

“I’m thinking about it. Running for the leadership of Labor is the leading option,” he tells Army Radio.

Barlev, a former general, ran for head of the party in 2017, but fared poorly.
