Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu lost his re-election bid to the "Israel One" canidate– Ehud Barak. Barak won a landslide victory, after campaigning to move the peace process forward. After his election Barak kept his promise and on September 4th, 1999 he signed a revised agreement with the PLO to implement further Israeli withdrawals from the West Bank. That agreement included a blueprint for final status negotiations aimed at a final peace accord. Barak's tenure was to be short, as peace talks with the Palestinians broke down in an attempt to reach a final peace accord. The Palestinians then began a second "intifada". As a result in early 2001 Barak lost a reelection bid and was replaced by Ariel Sharon, who formed a unity government.
