Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Monday he would “do everything” in his power to prevent a long-shot effort for opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu to form a new coalition in the current Knesset, believing that fresh elections are the better option for the country. “I will do everything to prevent the formation of an alternative government in this Knesset under Netanyahu,” Gantz said at a press conference ahead of a meeting of his Blue and White party.

Asked whether he would agree to form a coalition with Likud if he led it, Gantz said that was not an option. “I don’t currently see an alternative government in this Knesset,” he said. “This government didn’t persist, but we proved we could work together,” Gantz added, referencing the cross-spectrum breadth of the outgoing coalition.
