Benny Gantz set to seek alliance with other parties — report

Blue and White leader Benny Gantz is expected to announce this evening his willingness to make personal concessions in order to ally with other political parties ahead of the next election, Channel 12 reports.

Gantz is expected to give a press statement soon.

The report appears to indicate that Gantz would be willing to cede the number one spot on a joint slate. His crumbling party is currently polling at some 4-5 seats, after he led it to 33 seats in the March election. But he later broke a key election promise by agreeing to join a government under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a decision that splintered his party and has caused him to hemorrhage support.
