Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid will meet with Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz later this evening, the former’s office says.

Gantz recommended that Lapid be tapped with forming the next government, but the Yesh Atid leader received fewer nods than Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was given the first stab.
