Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid have concluded their first meeting since the election, discussing ways to cooperate in order to replace Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Gantz has not yet pledged to recommend that Lapid be tapped to form the next government.

The two party leaders have a lot of bad blood between them after they ran together in the last election, only to split when Gantz decided to form a government with Netanyahu.
