Gantz says he’ll lead Blue and White, create ‘alliance’ against Netanyahu

Benny Gantz says he will continue to lead the Blue and White party despite the fact that it has crashed in opinion polls and that many of its members have been jumping ship.

“You’re welcome to leave, the door is open,” he says.

Gantz says his party will preserve the current government until the election. After it, he says, there will be an “alliance” against Netanyahu — a likely indication that he intends to join forces with another party.

“As we knew how to save the country from Netanyahu, we’ll know how to steer the country to better waters,” he concludes the press conference.
