Blue and White leader Benny Gantz returned the mandate to form the government to President Reuven Rivlin Wednesday evening, signalling the end of his attempts to form a coalition.

Both Gantz and incumbent Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu have failed to form a government more than two months after the last elections.

Members of the Knesset will now have the opportunity to recommend a candidate for prime minister over the next three weeks, However, a third round of elections appears likely.

"Gantz told the president that he is also committed in the remaining 21 days to continue to make every effort to form a good government for Israeli citizens." the Blue and White party said in a statement.

Gantz spoke after the mandate was returned and strongly attacked Prime Minister Netanyahu. "We have come across a block of people serving one person's interests. No prime minister has the right to tell citizens that his interest is in the public interest."

"I received from the party which lost teases, scorns and childish videos. There is a barricade here by a transitional government against the will of the people," he claimed.

According to the Blue and White Chairman, "I was ready for compromises. I turn to Netanyahu - Israel is important from every point of view of political viewpoints. The incitement campaign you are leading has produced terrible results in the past. Our patience with the sowing of hatred also...

This type of a government seems like it could get exhausting.

Or, some of Netanyahu’s allies abandon him and make a deal with Gantz who would give up his shared power with Lapid. So a right coalition without Netanyahu, possibly headed by Gideon Saar, who would power share with Gantz, leaving Lapid, Liberman and Netanyahu on the outside.

Looks like it. I voted Bennett in the last two elections, and am going to vote for him again.

On second thought, Gantz is beginning to sound like Hillary. I don’t think I like him.

I predict...that the Israeli people are getting tired of this horsing around and will vote massively for Likud and put Netanyahu back in. Or if not massively then enough to bring him over the top.

Bibi should mass arrest Blue And White underneath Gantz.

Gantz will call for civil disruption but have no power to enforce anything; the Army will side with Bibi.

Bibi was brilliant to blast Gantz for even considering inviting the Arab parties to form a government, calling it a “national act of terrorism.” “General” Gantz looks much weaker now, and will likely lose the 3rd electoral round.

... As of Thursday morning, anytime in the next 21 days, a 61 MK majority is now entitled to submit a written request to President Reuven Rivlin to give the role of forming a government to a specific MK, who agrees to it in writing.

Rivlin then is charged with giving the mandate to form a government within two days...

” However, a third round of elections appears likely.”

Hence the indictment of Binyamin Netanyahu?

Gantz did better than Bibi among military voters in the last election.
