Barak: Narrow government is trouble

Defense Minister Ehud Barak
Israel's Defense Minister warns against the emergence of a narrow government, which is the expected choice by the Premier designate.

"What Israel needs is a broad unity government. A narrow right-wing coalition is trouble," Ehud Barak said on Friday, Jerusalem Post reported.

Benjamin Netanyahu's appointment as prime minister, which translated to his Likud party's leadership of the government, followed strong responses from the Labor party, chaired by Barak and Kadima, led by Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni.

Barak has refused talks on the matter at the request of his party and Livni had ruled out forming a union with Likud late in February.

Analysts say the rejection propels Netanyahu towards forming a narrow coalition government composed of the right wing parties namely Yisrael Beiteinu whose leader Avigdor Lieberman's endorsement played a key role in Netanyahu's appointment.

"It's righteous anger. The elections pointed us towards the opposition, but the obsession with going to the opposition and the decisive attempt to prevent any dialogue at any cost are unclear to me, and seem odd," Barak, however, said.
