Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz declares that tomorrow will be a “dark day” as Israel will no longer have a justice minister thanks to what he claims is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to block a vote on the matter in the cabinet.

Gantz has served as justice minister for the past several months in an interim capacity, but that term is slated to expire tomorrow.

Speaking at a press conference, he calls on Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit to compel Netanyahu to allow the appointment of a permanent justice minister.

“I will not allow this violation of the rule of law,” he says.
