    Labor members vote in favor of joining Likud-led government

    Today, Israel's Labor Party convention voted in favor of Labor's joining a government headed by the Likud. The decision clears the way to give Binyamin Netanyahu's coalition enough seats to allow him to take office as Israel's next Prime Minister.

    Labor members voted in favor of chairman Ehud Barak's proposal for the party to join a Likud-led government during Tuesday night's convention at Tel Aviv's Exhibition Grounds.

    1,071 party members attended the convention, with 58 percent voting in favor of joining the government and 42% voting against it - a margin of 173 votes.

    I don't know much about the inner workings of Israeli politics...but if Labor had the opportunity to stop Netanyahu and get Livni instead, and didn't take advantage of it, then I am very disappointed.
