Meretz MK says he’d sit with Bennett, Sa’ar if it means ousting Netanyahu

MK Yair Golan of the left-wing Meretz party expresses openness to sitting in an unlikely coalition with the right-wing parties of Naftali Bennett and Gideon Sa’ar in an effort to oust Prime Minister Netanyahu.

“I strongly believe that Israel’s healing depends on [Netanyahu] leaving office,” Golan tells Army Radio. “I am willing to sit with Bennett and Sa’ar, if one of them manages to form an alternative. The goal is to replace Netanyahu.

“It may be that in a year we will go to elections within a year — but in the meantime, Netanyahu’s trial will advance and the public will get used to the realization that they can live without him.”
