Blue and White ‘cautiously optimistic’ about results

Blue and White is “cautiously optimistic” that Israel will get a new leadership, a spokesperson for party leader Benny Gantz says.

“Right now, the plan is to wait, be cautiously optimistic, wait for the final results and hope that we’re at a moment of change, a moment the nation is waiting for,” Melody Sucharewicz tells The Times of Israel.

Asked whether Gantz would consider a rotation deal with PM Netanyahu, which would see Gantz serve first as prime minister, to be replaced in two years by the Likud leader, she replies: “Our goal is clear, and nothing has changed: to build a stable, secular national unity government, without Netanyahu. Tonight, we came one step closer to having a new leadership.”
