Israel's ex-FM Livni announces return to politics

The Associated Press

Israel's former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has announced she is returning to politics and has told supporters she is forming a new party to run in January parliamentary elections.

Livni told a news conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday that her new party, called "The Movement," would aggressively pursue peace with the Palestinians.

She harshly criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's hardline government for the past four years of deadlock in peace efforts.

She says she "decided to give an answer to people who don't have anyone to vote for."

Livni's return adds another name to what already is a fractured centrist opposition.

She served as foreign minister and chief peace negotiator from 2006 to 2009. She left politics this year after she was ousted as leader of the Kadima Party.
