Netanyahu said to have agreed Rivlin's proposed power share deal, Gantz refused

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to a compromise power sharing deal with Benny Gantz that was proposed by President Reuven Rivlin, but the Blue and White leader refused, the Haaretz daily reported late Wednesday.

The report, which was not sourced, said that after Netanyahu agreed, Gantz debated the idea but ultimately rejected it.

Following the breakdown of two days of talks brokered by Rivlin, the president gave Netanyahu the mandate to try to form a coalition.

Rivlin laid out his compromise, saying that he had proposed to Gantz and Netanyahu a legal change to the position of “interim prime minister” that would grant the office holder “full power” in the case the prime minister cannot carry out his duties.
