TV report: Gantz, Ashkenazi considering departing politics

Channel 13 News reports that the leaders of Blue and White, Benny Gantz and Gabi Ashkenazi, are considering stepping down from politics and not running in the next election.

Blue and White is collapsing in polls and is projected to win 5-6 seats in the next election, over its electorally disastrous decision to enter Benjamin Netanyahu’s government after pledging not to do so during its election campaign.
