Gantz’ Party Submits Proposal to Dissolve Israeli Government

The National Unity Party, which Israeli war cabinet minister Benny Gantz is part of, has submitted a proposal to dissolve the Israeli Knesset and hold early elections, citing lack of public trust and unity within the government.

in a statement, National Unity lawmaker Pnina Tamano-Shata said “Oct. 7 is a disaster that obliges us to return and receive the trust of the nation; to establish a broad and stable unity government that can lead us with confidence in the face of major challenges in terms of security, the economy and especially in Israeli society.”

The bill can be viewed as an attempt to remove Benjamin Netanyahu from his position as Prime Minister, highlighting continued rifts between him and Gantz.
