    Gantz rejects Netanyahu’s conditions for forming gov’t, Likud expected to return mandate

    Since Gantz opposed the terms Netanyahu set for a unity coalition, Likud’s mandate to form the next government will likely be returned to President Rivlin, who will then give Gantz the same opportunity.

    By Associated Press

    Israel’s Blue and White party rejected what it said were demands from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to form a unity government under his leadership with the prime minister’s right-wing and religious allies.

    After talks with Netanyahu’s Likud, the Blue and White party said it “made clear from the outset” that it would reject those conditions, underscoring the daunting task facing Israel’s longest-serving prime minister.

    Likud sources say that Netanyahu is expected to return his mandate to form a government to Israeli President Rivlin before Sunday evening, when the holiday of Rosh Hashana begins.

    President Rivlin will then appoint Blue & White party leader Benny Gantz with the task of forming a government. Gantz will be given 28 days to form a coalition of 61 Knesset members but is also expected to fail.

    The Blue and White party, led by former army chief Benny Gantz, won 33 seats, closely followed by Netanyahu’s Likud, with 32. But neither has enough support to assemble a 61-seat majority coalition, and they are fiercely divided over the leadership and makeup of any unity government.

    Netanyahu says he is negotiating as the head of a 55-seat bloc that includes his allies, while the Blue and White says it is only negotiating with the Likud. Gantz has said he will not sit in a government led by Netanyahu while the prime minister faces corruption allegations. A hearing is set on the matter next week.

    I feel that it’s a reflection of the turmoil and chaos happening globally. Look at the division in America right now. Look at the circus in the EU around Brexit etc. if we think Ordo Ab Chao…..eventually at some point the man of lawlessness will rise up to bring order. So i don’t see the chaos going away, only increasing in the times ahead.
