Gantz: Unity government can be formed ‘within an hour’ if Netanyahu steps aside

Blue and White leader Benny Gantz says a unity government can quickly be formed if Prime Minister Netanyahu steps aside as Likud leader.

“If he vacates his position, there will be a unity government within an hour,” he tells reporters at the Knesset.

Gantz also lauds his No. 2 Yair Lapid for forgoing their agreement to rotate as prime minister if Blue and White forms the government. He says Lapid decided on this alone.

“He took a brave step,” Gantz says.
