Set to task with forming government this evening



President Reuven Rivlin's office says they expect the president will have a candidate on Wednesday evening forming the next Israeli government.

Likud Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White Prime Minister Benny Gantz arrived Wednesday afternoon at Rivlin's office for a second three-way meeting. Anxious to avoid a third round of elections within a year, Rivlin had been pressing for the two to form a unity government.

Neither Netanyahu nor Gantz has enough support from the 120 Knesset members to claim a potential 61-MK government for their right-wing and center-left blocs, respectively.
