Zionist Union MK endorses Ehud Barak campaign

Former prime minister Ehud Barak, who by all indications is mulling a comeback, receives an unexpected tailwind from a member of his former party.

In a tweet that features a pre-retirement (and pre-retirement beard) picture of Barak, MK Yoel Hasson of the Zionist Union calls for a “revolution” in the party in order to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“I call on anyone who wants to replace the government rather than praise it… to participate and join,” he tweets, linking to a longer Facebook post in which he details his reasons for endorsing Barak.

Incidentally, the current leader of the party, Isaac Herzog, who has not been inspiring much respect in his colleagues of late, publishes a statement asserting that he has no intention of bringing his party into the coalition and will in fact be launching an “aggressive campaign against Netanyahu” soon.
