Peretz Submits Knesset Resignation to Rivlin

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin received MK Amir Peretz’s letter of resignation from the Knesset and remarked, ”We have to ask ourselves about what is happening to our political culture. Many Israelis raise their eyebrows in the face of this conduct, which has become routine. I believe the next Knesset will have to curtail this phenomenon with political legislation of a behavioral code that will determine if a candidate who ran in one party’s primaries will be able to subsequently shift to another party.”
