Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s Blue and White Party and Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar’s New Hope Party are merging, the two announced in a press conference on Sunday night. “Today we are laying the foundation stone of the next government,” Gantz said. “The edges and extremes have set the tone for too long, and the Israeli center remained without a voice.”

Gantz described his year under former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for which he was heavily criticized in the anti-Bibi camp, as “putting a hand on the steering wheel,” which succeeded in “stopping a critical blow to democracy and safeguarding the legal system.”

“The citizens of Israel need a functioning government that will take care of its national security,” Gantz said. Gantz praised Sa’ar, calling him a “brave and honest leader.”
