Responding to Netanyahu’s video blaming him for the vaccine purchase delay, Blue and White head Benny Gantz slings insults, and says the vaccines will get an okay when a justice minister gets one.
“Netanyahu, you waited until now to emerge from your bunker and it’s to lie? You are choking our democracy to escape justice and trying to leave the state without a justice minister. If the country is more important to you than your trial, convene the government and we’ll approve what we need to approve, today.”
Gantz’s term as interim justice minister expires this week, but Netanyahu is refusing to allow Gantz to nominate another candidate for the position. Netanyahu is barred from having input due to a conflict of interest since he is on trial in three graft cases.
