Israel’s ex-minister Livni announces return to politics

— Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni announced her return to politics Tuesday, telling supporters that she was forming a new party to run in January parliamentary elections on a platform promising an aggressive push for peace with the Palestinians.

Livni, who served as Israel’s foreign minister and chief peace negotiator from 2006 to 2009, bitterly attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as she announced the formation of her new party, called “The Movement.”

“I came to fight for peace ... and I won’t allow anyone to turn peace into a bad word,” she said.

Her announcement brought a new, high-profile voice to the campaign to oust Netanyahu’s hardline government. But with his Likud Party leading in opinion polls and the opposition divided among several parties, her candidacy did not immediately appear to pose a threat to the prime minister.
