Israel’s opposition leader Gantz chosen to form new government

Israel’s opposition leader, Benny Gantz, will have his first chance to form a new government. He, along with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was summoned by the president to an emergency meeting on Sunday, in hopes of breaking the deadlock that has plagued the country for the past year and that could hamper the response to the pandemic. Israel’s president says he will formally assign Gantz with the task on Monday. He has a month to form a governing coalition, which would break Netanyahu’s 11-year grip on power.
