Two weeks before Israelis go to the polls for the fifth time in just over three and a half years, Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Tuesday he is willing to sit in a coalition with Opposition Leader Benjamin Netanyahu, but only under certain conditions.

Speaking with Radio BeRama Tuesday morning, Gantz said he would be willing to serve in a coalition which includes Netanyahu – so long as Netanyahu does not serve either as prime minister or in any other ministerial capacity in the government.

“I won’t sit under or with Netanyahu in the government,” Gantz said, while adding that he would be amenable to serving in a coalition which includes Netanyahu as a MK. “So he wouldn’t be in the government.” Gantz added that he would not accept any government that relies on either the Hadash-Ta’al party – formerly the Joint Arab List – or the Religious Zionist Party.
