Before the vote Barak was not speaking out against the bill like he is now and he did not say that Labor will not back it as Livni did. The party got a free vote and he personally rather than voting against the bill just didn't turn up for the vote. So whilst he may personally not have liked it he did nothing to stop it passing. Livni at least made clear from the start she was against it and she said her party would vote against it.
