Labor and Blue and White announce planned merger

Labor’s Amir Peretz and Blue and White’s Benny Gantz meet to discuss a merger of their parties.

“In the first stage, rules will be set on joint and coordinated work inside the Knesset, with the aim of merging the parties,” a joint statement says.

The statement suggests the two parties could run on a joint ticket in future elections, and taps MKs Avi Nissenkorn and Itzhik Shmuli to discuss these arrangements.
