Barak Calls Tuesday Morning News Conference


Defense Minister Ehud Barak has scheduled a news conference for 11:00 a.m. Tuesday at the ministry's Kirya headquarters in Tel Aviv.

While Barak's office provided no details, the announcement is expected to deal with his political future. According to the polls, his five-member Ha'atzma'ut faction will not get enough votes in January's election to return to the Knesset. Recent rumors about his joining the Likud Beytenu list have been dismissed.
