Opposition MK: Gantz must quit as speaker to get our votes on Netanyahu bills

Meretz MK Yair Golan says his left-wing party won’t support bills that aim to unseat Netanyahu unless Blue and White’s Benny Gantz quits as Knesset speaker.

“If Benny Gantz wants our support for this aforementioned batch of bills, he should relinquish the position of Knesset speaker to a seasoned and experienced lawmaker from the [left-wing] bloc who isn’t tilting toward the government of corruption and waste. This would be the first step in restoring lost confidence,” he tweets.

Gantz has yet to officially approve the legislation targeting Netanyahu, according to a Knesset agenda for Monday.
