Benny Gantz rejects Netanyahu's proposal to form unity government
Thursday, 19 September 2019 Benny Gantz has rejected Benjamin Netanyahu's call to join him and form a unity government, saying he alone should be Israel's next prime minister. Gantz's party holds a two-seat advantage after most of Tuesday's election votes have been counted. Dr. Ehud Eiran, a senior lecturer at the School of Political Sciences at the University of Haifa, Israel, joined CBSN to discuss what happens next.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's main election challenger, centrist party chief Benny Gantz, said on Wednesday (September 17) it appeared from exit polls that the Israeli leader was defeated but that only official results would tell.
