Prime Minister Yair Lapid welcomes news of a joint electoral union between Benny Gantz and Gideon Sa’ar ahead of the November 1 vote.

“I wish good luck to Benny Gantz and Gideon Sa’ar,” Lapid tweets. “I am convinced that your intentions are good. I look forward to continuing to work with you on behalf of the citizens of Israel.”

Lapid’s Yesh Atid ran together with Gantz’s Blue and White in the April 2019, September 2019, and March 2020 elections. When Gantz decided to join the government of former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the parties split up and have remained separate since.
