Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak put his support behind Zionist Union’s Isaac Herzog on Monday.
In a statement, Barak, who also served as defense minister and IDF chief of staff, said that Herzog is a balanced, experienced and responsible person.
“I saw Isaac Herzog up close during the most sensitive of security and domestic hearings and in the end– [made] decisions,” he said.
“I support Isaac Herzog. Israeli civilians as well can trust him on every security matter that before us.”
On Thursday, former president Shimon Peres also announced his endorsement of Herzog to be the next prime minister of Israel.
