Blue and White denies TV report it may join with Yamina for election

Blue and White denies a report on Channel 12 News that leader Benny Gantz is considering joining his party with hard-right Yamina ahead of the March election.

The party says the report is “a lie” and that Gantz is not considering any such move. “Enough fabrication and lies. Politicians had better focus on responsibly managing the country, instead of spin.”

Former justice minister Avi Nissenkorn made a similar claim days ago.
