PM Netanyahu meets Benny Gantz, Gabi Ashkenazi, to iron out agreements for unity government.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met Saturday night with Israel Resilience Chairman MK Benny Gantz and MK Gabi Ashkenazi, to discuss a unity government.

Under the agreement, Netanyahu is expected to serve a year and a half as prime minister, after which Gantz will replace him for another year and a half. Israel Resilience is expected to support a law which will allow Netanyahu to serve as Deputy Prime Minister and a member of Cabinet, despite the charges against him. Sources in Israel Resilience have said they will insist that Netanyahu not serve as a minister.

Israel Resilience is counting on each of its MKs receiving a ministerial position, while Likud will receive just ten portfolios under the deal.

Israel Resilience expects to receive the Foreign, Defense, Justice, and Communications ministries.

The main disagreements between the parties include Israel Resilience's demand not to re-elect MK Yuli Edelstein (Likud) to his position as Knesset Speaker, due to the fact that he resigned the position due to the Supreme Court's interference. However, the Likud refuses to back down from its demand to reinstate Edelstein, demanding that both that position and the Health Ministry remain in the hands of the right-wing bloc.

Channel 13 reported that the agreements between the sides include canceling the Kaminitz Law, which includes a series of legislative amendments to improve the government's ability to deal with illegal construction and enable more effective enforcement of planning and construction laws.
