Blue and White to court: Reject petitions against Netanyahu forming government

Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party tells the High Court it believes the petitions against Benjamin Netanyahu forming the next government should be rejected.

Though it notes the severity of the criminal accusations against the prime minister, the party, set to join Netanyahu in a unity government, says the special circumstances of deep political, health and economic crises necessitate forming an emergency government, as set out in its agreement with Likud.
