The head of Israel’s Labor Party is facing his first formal leadership challenge. Two senior Laborites announced Wednesday they would run against Amir Peretz in the party primary, currently scheduled for May 2007. The two contenders, former security chief Ami Ayalon and veteran economist Avishai Braverman, agreed they would campaign jointly, though they have not yet determined who will be the lead candidate against Peretz.
