Benny Gantz.

MK Miki Zohar (Likud) called on Defense Minister Benny Gantz to leave the coalition and form a government with the Likud. "My friend Benny Gantz, as someone who is focused on what is good for Israel - join us in forming a national government without the left and without representatives of the Islamic movement and thus save the citizens of Israel from this evil government," Zohar said. In an interview with the Knesset channel, Zohar claimed that "if Benny Gantz wants, he will be prime minister" first in a rotation with Benjamin Netanyahu.

Likud seeks to convince Gantz to bolt government, replace Bennett as PM
MK Zohar says defense minister ‘can be prime minister right now’ if he agrees to form an alternate coalition with right-wing parties

Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party renewed on Monday its public efforts to persuade Blue and White’s Benny Gantz to leave the government and form an alternate coalition with right-wing parties. “If Benny Gantz wants to be prime minister, he can be prime minister — right now,” Likud MK Miki Zohar told the Knesset channel in a Monday interview, referring to an offer for the defense minister to become premier as part of a rotation deal that would see Netanyahu returned to power in two years’ time.

Zohar later tweeted at Gantz: “Join us to form a national government without the left and without representatives of the Islamic Movement and save the people of Israel from this bad government.” Gantz, who previously joined a power-sharing government with Likud, did not immediately respond. Asked about the offer at the Yesh Atid faction meeting in the Knesset, Foreign Minister and Alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid laughed off the suggestion that the Likud would succeed in enticing Gantz.
