Gantz, Israeli Minister, Calls for Early Elections

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been called out by war cabinet member Benny Gantz to hold new elections in September. According to Gantz, this move would garner international support for Israel and reduce divisions within society. However, there are no immediate consequences for Gantz’s demands, and he did not threaten to leave the war cabinet if Netanyahu did not comply.

Gantz could potentially benefit from new elections as surveys indicate that his center-right National Union party would be the strongest faction. If Netanyahu’s Likud party continues to decline in popularity among voters, Gantz may become the next prime minister if new elections are held. The official date for the next parliamentary election in Israel is not until October 2026.

Netanyahu’s Likud party has rejected Gantz’s demands, citing the need to continue government operations until all war goals are achieved. The party believes that an early election could paralyze the country, divide society, and jeopardize efforts to secure the release of hostages. Critics of Netanyahu accuse him of failing to take responsibility for allowing a Hamas massacre on October 7th. Despite joining the war cabinet after the start of the Gaza war, Gantz is viewed as playing a moderating role within the government.
