Benny Gantz will get the opportunity to try to form an Israeli government after Benjamin Netanyahu couldn’t form a coalition. Here’s how that works.
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said he was still hopeful that a unity government would be formed. “The people don’t want another election,” he said.
Joint List head Ayman Odeh said the rare step was necessary to prevent another term for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Netanyahu may be out but, the occupation will carry on.
Gantz was marked for greatness at a young age, but was an unexpected choice to be IDF chief of staff, much less run the country.
It’s looking grim for Netanyahu, but don’t celebrate just yet.
Some Arab Citizens of Israel are choosing to boycott this election.
Just as young voters in America don’t know a US without Obama, many Israeli young people don’t know an Israel without Netanyahu.
“To the Palestinian public…the nuances between the two mainstream candidates, Bibi and Gantz, are largely irrelevant.”
Gantz’s Blue and White party played down the report and suggested it had been deliberately leaked.
