Peretz Calls on Labor Members to Join Him in Hatenu'ah

Former Labor Member of Knesset Amir Peretz, who joined Tzipi Livni's Hatenu'ah party just before the filing deadline for January's Knesset election, sent a letter to Labor members, Tuesday, asking them to join him in his new party.

The letter, which was published in the Yisrael Hayom daily, read, in part, "It is morally appropriate and desirable for all those who intend to vote for me and for the Hatenu'ah to leave Labor."
