Former prime minister Ehud Barak announced on Wednesday a return to politics as the leader of a new party in Israel’s coming national election, saying it was time to end Benjamin Netanyahu’s “corrupt leadership”.

Political commentators said a comeback for Barak, who once led the left-wing Labour Party, could fragment Israel’s center-left and harm the chances of Netanyahu’s strongest challenger, Benny Gantz of the Blue and White party, unseating him in the Sept. 17 poll.
