President Rivlin accuses MK Benny Gantz of forming a government (25.10.2019)

President Rivlin.

"There is no reason to hold another round of elections for the Israeli public for the third time in one year. If a government is to be formed, then everyone will pay the price. But if this is not the case, then the citizens of Israel will pay the price. Israel will pay the biggest price for this."



Wednesday, October 23/24, 2019 President Rishin Rivlin of Ruiven appointed the person in charge of Kachol Lavan MK Benny Gantz to form the government. In accordance with the Basic Law: Government (2001), the President signed the appointment of MK Benny Gantz earlier this evening, forming the government.  At the request of MK Gantz, the President also spoke with representatives of Kachol Lavan. The current status of the President


Monday, October 21 / Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu handed over the task of forming a government to the president, and after a round of dialogue with the Israeli factions, the president decided to hand it over to MK Benny Gantz, the head of Kachol Lavan. Once the president asks him to form a new government, MK Gantz will have 28 days to do so, with no possibility of extension, according to the law.


In presenting him with the mandate, the president said, "Before I held consultations with the Israeli factions to decide who would form the government, 54 Knesset members expressed their support for MK Benny Gantz. Therefore, I decided to give you the opportunity to assemble the legal requirements, starting tomorrow, you will have 28 days to form a government, which is a very short time, and this is the day of destiny. The scope and scale of the challenges ahead require Israel to establish a government, a government of the Israeli people Israel."


"In the context of the election results, where no candidate received the support of 61 MKs, the fact is that giving one of the two candidates the task of forming a government is not a solution in itself. We cannot absolve the two candidates and the parties of their responsibility to create the conditions to break the stalemate we have reached. We must remember that as long as we do not oppose the exclusion of all groups in Israeli society, as long as there is no impetus to create a new coalition between large and small parties, as long as there is no real agreement, no desire to reach a compromise, there will be no government."


The president said, "I proposed a plan to clear the way for a unified government in the Likud and Karkor Lavan. The roadmap I proposed is not perfect, but it paves the way for the new government to achieve election results. Consider the relationship between the parties and their supporters."


The president said, "It is possible to have a government." "There is no reason to hold another round of elections for the Israeli public for the third time in one year. If a government is to be formed, then everyone will pay the price. But if not, then the citizens of Israel will pay the price. Israel will pay the biggest price for this, and the key to forming a government in Israel is now in the hands of all elected officials and all political parties, and I call on all elected officials not to undermine public confidence in Israel's democracy. President dear to the President, President Gantz said, "This is for my dear people, for the good of the people of Israel, and I wish everyone success."
