Gantz proposes unity gov’t rotation if he leads it first

The chief challenger to Israel’s embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is proposing to lead a unity government with Netanyahu’s Likud party.

On Saturday, Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz proposed a unity government for Israel that he would head for two years, with Netanyahu taking over the following two years — if he is acquitted of corruption charges.

Gantz claimed his plan was the “only way to avoid unnecessary elections that no one wants.”

It was Gantz’s first concrete offer to extract Israel from its political impasse since the country’s attorney general announced Thursday Netanyahu would be indicted.

Netanyahu currently heads a caretaker government after two inconclusive elections.

Previous efforts at a power-sharing agreement between the two largest parties failed. Netanyahu has vowed to remain in office.

Gantz thinks he has the upper hand since Bibi was indicted.

Liberman: No option left but another election

Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Liberman said that Israeli citizens will have to head to the polls for a third time in a year as he refuses to enable the formation of a government built on a narrow majority. He blamed the large parties for not coming to an agreement on unity.

According to a Thursday article in Yediot Ahronot, Liberman said that his hints in recent days that he may join a right-wing government were simply a pressure tactic aimed mainly at the Blue and White party to make compromises in negotiations with the Likud.

Saying that he had done everything remotely possible to form a unity government, he laid the responsibility for the failure squarely on the shoulders of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White head Benny Gantz.

“Unfortunately, both of them made a strategic decision not to go with unity, so the two parties are responsible for another election campaign. On election night, we promised that we’d turn over every stone, that we’d try to exhaust every option and suggest every imaginable initiative. We did this,” he said. “We come with clean hands” to the electorate.

Liberman suggested that the reason for the impasse was that each party is “bewitched” by internal polling that shows that they can gain the extra seats they need to form a narrow government if the public goes to the polls once again.

It is nearly certain Israel will have a third election.

Israel headed on Wednesday toward a third national election in less than a year.

Neither Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party nor the centrist Blue and White party led by his main rival won enough seats in the Knesset for a governing majority in the previous two contests.

Both men were delegated the task of forming a coalition, but failed.

After giving its preliminary approval, and barring last-minute progress in deadlocked efforts to form a new government, parliament was set to vote for its dissolution later in the day and approve a March 2 election date already agreed by the two major parties.

I doubt Netanyahu will lead Likud into another election.

When I think of Israel, I think of Benjamin Netanyahu.
