Labor chair says Meretz will likely cross threshold, urges Gantz to quit

Speaking to Channel 12’s Influencers Conference, Labor chair Merav Michaeli dismisses concerns that the Meretz party to her left will not cross the threshold.

“I believe they will cross in the end,” she says, adding that if anyone should be dropping out, it is the Benny Gantz-led Blue and White.

Meretz has been polling just below the threshold in recent days, while Blue and White has been steady at 4-5.

Michaeli says Gantz will once again sit with Netanyahu and should quit while he’s ahead as he as “destroyed the center-left bloc” by breaking his promise to voters not to serve under the Likud leader after the last election.
