TV: Netanyahu offered to serve as PM for under 6 months, then give post to Gantz

According to Channel 13, Netanyahu, in closed talks, says he offered Benny Gantz a premiership rotation agreement, under which he would serve as prime minister for up to six months before vacating the position for the Blue and White leader.

Netanyahu says he promised to leave office “without tricks or funny business,” but Blue and White’s Lapid was preventing a deal.

Channel 12 also reports the Likud leader’s offer. It says Blue and White was considering the possibility that Lapid’s Yesh Atid faction in the alliance would not enter the coalition until after Netanyahu departs, should Gantz take up the offer.
