Gantz to Likud: I go first, hand over to Netanyahu in mid-term if he is cleared

Kahol Lavan party leader Gantz made a new offer to the Likud party for pulling the country out of its political deadlock without another election: “I take the premiership for the first two years of a national unity government and hand over to Binyamin Netanyahu for the last two years – if he is acquitted in court of the corruption charges against him.” Gantz said he is willing to set up “the broadest possible” lineup.

DEBKAfile: For the sake of going first as prime minister in  unity government, Benny Gantz has decided to drop Kahol Lavan’s insistence on Likud ditching its right-wing and religious allies in the Bloc of 55.

      Hmmm, seems like most likely way for PM Netanyahu to retain premiership without another election. From indications here on DebkaFile, Likud may drop him if there is another election which would guarantee his loss. If B. Gantz performs poorly in his 2-years, then PM Netanyahu would stand a greater chance of being re-elected in the future if found innocent of charges. Simple and uncomplicated. What is your reasoned solution?
      Peace.

    The more Gantz opens his mouth same for lapid the more i detest him.
    Gantz is power hungry, has no respect for the people and the less comfortable I feel about him being a good forget great prime minister. He is not up to the job.

    He must be voted in not legislated in. Judges must not supersede the people. Judges must judge not create laws. Only voted in politicians must decide for the people. Not unelected, self appointed great in their minds only persons. An old saying goes…I’d rather be ruled by 200 names pulled at random from the phone book then 200 intellectuals, lawyers, judges university professors.

    Gantz & Future Leaders will have the same problems as Bibi if Reforms Do Not Come in the Attorney General Office. Weaponizing Claims of Justices during a Political Stalemate Divisional over Wine & Cigars Undermines AG Own Trust Judgement on the Rule of Law!

    The fat lady has sung –

    Netanyahu is trapped like a unusually Wylie Coyote

    Guantanamo, the Hague, or somewhere in Israel itself?

      You have to make it sound better than that for instance – try prime Caribbean coast front property within shouting distance of Pedo Island, a red light undisclosed location Holland, or a remote Mediterranean island in Tuscany. Oops sorry that last one was Elba

        The long national nightmare of Netanyahu/Neocons is over in America
        It is important for America’s healing process and self-respect for setting red lines on Netanyahu at last, for America to do its part in getting rid of Netanyahu, that’s why it’s important for the Mueller report findings Netanyahu to come out so the American people can reject him. Once the American people see the reporting on it then it’s sayonara to Netanyahu

        It’s the only way it’s going to work anyway so let’s get to it and give him the old one-two punch – first Mandelblit indictments and then from America’s side we’ll slap him with the Mueller report crimes
