(Worthy News) - Blue and White Party Chairman Benny Gantz delivered a speech Wednesday evening, together with Yair Lapid, following the election results which indicate that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will continue to a fifth term.

While admitting that he will not be the one forming a governing coalition, Gantz expressed satisfaction with his party's impressive success at achieving an equal amount of Knesset seats as the Likud, even if he unable to form coalition. "We have established a genuine leadership alternative," he said.

"Netanyahu gathered all of the extremists and cannibalized his partners," Gantz continued. "The result is quite unprecedented and indicates the level of expectation (for an alternative) … Our party consists of right, left, religious and secular. In 70 days we managed to achieve the same amount of Knesset seats as a party which exists since the 1970s." [ Source: YNet news (Read More...) ]
