Coalition deal includes official residence for deputy PM

According to the coalition agreement signed by Netanyahu and Gantz, the position of acting prime minister — which Netanyahu is set to fill once Gantz becomes prime minister in 18 months — includes an official state residence, akin to the Prime Minister’s Residence.

Gantz will therefore likely move from his current Rosh HaAyin home, while he serves as deputy prime minsiter.

Previously, both the Likud and Blue and White had denied that any such clause would be included in the agreement.
