(Worthy News) - Officials in the Blue and White and Likud parties reportedly warned Wednesday that Israel was on its way to a third national election in under a year, saying the chances of forming a unity government were increasingly slim.
Blue and White leader Benny Gantz was tasked last week with forming a government after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to do so following elections last month. Talks on assembling a unity government have failed to yield progress as the two largest parties remain divided on a number of issues.
A Blue and White official told Channel 12 on Wednesday that developments over the past week were making a unity government more difficult to achieve. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
