Rebuffing Herzog, Gantz says overhaul talks only possible if bills frozen

National Unity party leader Benny Gantz says talks on a compromise judicial overhaul framework will only take place once the legislative process is put on the backburner, responding to President Isaac Herzog’s announcement that a deal is possible if the sides can get together.

“Things depend on one simple thing – stopping the legislative process and reaching a dialogue,” he says at a Knesset event, in response to Herzog’s statement.

“When it happens, everything will happen, and if it doesn’t, nothing will happen,” adds Gantz, considered the opposition’s most bullish voice on reaching compromise.
