Netanyahu hands opposition emergency govt proposals

Kahol Lavan leader Benny Gantz Sunday rejected as “not serious” two alternative proposals for a national government handed him by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. One was for a national emergency administration for six months under his leadership with ministerial parity between the two parties, Kahol Lavan and Likud. Neither party would be allowed to sack the other’s ministers or move no-confidence. Netanyahu’s second proposal was for a national unity government with the premiership rotated between him and Gantz at the two-year mark. In Jerusalem, President Reuven Rivlin Sunday launched consultations with the parties that were returned in the March election ahead of his choice of the best candidate for prime minister.
