Benny Gantz, winner of the last elections in Israel, and Benjamin Netanyahu , the second most voted candidate, met with Reuven Rivlin to advance the idea of forming a unity government. The president of Israel should be assigned soon to one of them the mission to seek support to establish a majority that exceeds the 61 seats that will grant the control in the chamber and the union between Blue and White , 33 seats, and Likud , 31, is presented as one of the most feasible. The big problem lies in the post of the prime minister that both candidates could alternate in periods of two years, but that Gantz wants to take first since it is the winner of the elections. The local media highlighted the urgency of Netanyahu for not losing control of the government in these times and that the next 3 of October must be brought to Justice for their corruption and wants to do it from a position of strength.
The decision of Rivlin to convene the two leaders occurred after the round of contacts that the president had with the representatives of the political forces gained representation in the chamber after the elections of a week ago. The end result of these interviews, which are offered live to all over the world could follow, ended up with 55 support for Netanyahu and 54 for Gantz. The decision of the three members of the Balad party, part of the "Joint List" formed by the arab parties, that is the third force in the country, with thirteen deputies, to break the consensus of the coalition and not support Gantz desniveló the balance in favor of the leader of the Likud.
Both Gantz as Netanyahu defended since the close of the polls the need to form a government "unit wide" e etween the Likud and the Party Blue and White, and insisted once more who has occupied the head of the executive of the last decade. The problem is knowing who will occupy the seat of prime minister since Gantz aspires to hold the position thanks to the endorsement it got in the polls, where he has been the more voted. The leader of Blue and White is clear, moreover, that not want to interfere with his team of government to religious parties or "extremists", a way of referring to ultra-nationalist formations that are natural allies of Netanyahu and with the qu eha formed a cooperation agreement to enter into a block in the negotiation.
The agreement seems does not seem imminent, and therefore magnifies the figure of the former Defence minister, Avigdor Lieberman, whose nine members are converted to hinge a must have for any covenant. The leader of the moldovan bet for a coalition with Likud and Blue and White and Gantz met with him just before you go to the appointment by the president. Lieberman made it very clear that "the whole discussion is now about who should serve first as prime minister and who is second".Updated Date: 25 September 2019, 13:03
