The media will now attempt to shift the narrative, claiming that it is Labour under pressure. This is absurd.
Gantz, the leader of the newly founded party Hosen L’Yisrael who is currently seen as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s main rival, has kept silent about his plans and platform. In his speech he is expected to detail why he decided to run for Knesset as well as his agenda.
