(Worthy News) - Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz and Likud counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to launch talks toward forming a unity government to break Israel’s current political impasse, after a meeting with President Reuven Rivlin on Monday.

The two met for over two hours at the President’s Residence, first with Rivlin and then alone with talks reportedly centering around who would head a possible joint government. Rivlin returned to again speak with Netanyahu and Gantz before the meeting ended.

Gantz, a former general whose centrist alliance took 33 seats in Tuesday’s election, was looking to unseat Netanyahu and his Likud party, which took 31 seats and has been at the helm for a decade. Neither party won enough seats together with their allied parties to secure a ruling majority, necessitating them to look outside their respective blocs or to each other to gather enough seats for a coalition.
