Foreign Minister Israel Katz said on Monday that a rotation deal between the leader of his Likud party, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Blue & White Chairman Benny Gantz for the position of prime minister is "off the table" after exit polls predict a win for Likud.
"The rotation deal is off the table, it was on the table after last time ended in a draw," Katz said in an interview at the Ynet studio. "There is no reason for such a deal because the people have chosen Netanyahu."
However, Katz didn't rule out establishing a unity government with the centrist party, but without a rotation deal.
"Everything should be on the table. We didn't rule anyone out, even during the election campaign," said Katz.
