National Unity party leader Benny Gantz says that negotiations to reach a compromise over the judicial overhaul should have started three months ago.

“We should have prevented everything this country has experienced over the past three months, we should have sat down three months ago and stopped the legislation and talked,” Gantz says in an interview with Channel 12 news.

Gantz says that despite the fact that National Unity and Yesh Atid are sending separate delegations to talks with President Isaac Herzog, “we’re very coordinated.”

The former defense minister says that “we need to reach an agreement that will serve all of the citizens of Israel, those who are in favor and those who are opposed,” adding: “Nobody should win here, I don’t want to win.”

Asked if he would consider joining Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, Gantz says “no,” adding: “I am not here to save the government, I am here to save the country.”
