Gantz slams Netanyahu for organizing protest against justice system

Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz issues a statement criticizing the pro-Netanyahu rally planned tonight in Tel Aviv protesting the justice system’s “attempted coup” by announcing charges against the prime minister.

“The right to protest and freedom of expression is the centerpiece of democracy. In a healthy democracy a person has the right to freely express their opinion,” Gantz tweets, before adding: “In a healthy democracy a prime minister doesn’t organize a protest against the law enforcement system for which he is responsible.”
