Netanyahu returns mandate to form government to President Rivlin

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has informed President Reuven Rivlin Monday that he is returning the mandate he received to form a government, since he was unable to do so.


The mandate is now expected to pass to Benny Gantz, leader of the second biggest party in parliament, Blue and White.


If Gantz also fails to form a government within 28 days, any other MK will be able to try to form a government over a 21-day-period.
