In fact, the coming election in Israel in January 2013 will probably end the political career of DM Barak in the government of PM Netanyahu as his party will not even pass the minimum number of votes requirement so stay in the government. Barak is a liberal who gets most of his votes from the Mozlem Brother Arabs of Israel. Since Barak left Avoda, the liberal party under Yechimovitz got stronger while Barak's party lost its political power.
