(Worthy News) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to a compromise power sharing deal with Benny Gantz that was proposed by President Reuven Rivlin, but the Blue and White leader refused it, the Haaretz daily reported late Wednesday.
The report, which was not sourced, said that after Netanyahu agreed, Gantz debated the idea but ultimately rejected it. The report described the proposal accepted by Netanyahu but rejected by Gantz as amounting to a situation in which the two men “would serve as prime minister simultaneously.” However, Rivlin in public on Wednesday did not specify such an arrangement. Rather, the president said he had proposed a “paritetic” unity government in which all responsibilities would be equally divided, and arrangements by which an “interim prime minister” would enjoy all prime ministerial authority if the prime minister was forced to take a leave of absence.
