Blue and White denies rumors of alliance with Yamina

The Blue and White party denies it’s seeking to run jointly with the right-wing Yamina party in the upcoming March elections.

The party also says its leader, Benny Gantz, will “run until the end to ensure that Bibi [Netanyahu] goes [home],” dismissing rumors he would take a break from political life.
