Peres Would Leave Labor Party Under Deal
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2005/1...

A deal was emerging Tuesday for elder statesman Shimon Peres to leave the Labor Party, his political home for 60 years, and join Ariel Sharon's government if the prime minister is re-elected in March.


A Sharon associate and newspaper reports said Peres would likely be charged with developing the outlying Galilee and the Negev regions if Sharon retains power. The associate spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss policy for the record.


In Barcelona on Tuesday, Peres refused to be drawn out. "I shall decide tomorrow night," he said.


But he had warm words for Sharon and none for Labor, whose members ousted him as party chairman earlier this month, in favor of union firebrand Amir Peretz.

1. Peretz had better come across
as being strong on (essential, real) security.
