Labor Party leader Amir Peretz wants to be Israel’s next defense minister. Peretz made the demand this week in coalition talks with interim Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, political sources said Tuesday. According to the sources, Peretz’s first choice was the Treasury, but this was refused by Olmert, whose Kadima Party won last week’s national elections.
