Netanyahu and Gantz in talks over possible power-sharing deal

Tel Aviv, September 25 (RHC)-- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and rival candidate Benny Gantz are in negotiations over a proposed power-sharing deal.  President Reuven Rivlin pushed for a unity government in talks with involved parties after neither leader’s party was able to secure a victory in last week’s elections. 

Negotiations are now focused on who will lead the government first, according to far-right former Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman. Gantz had previously rejected a unity government with Netanyahu, who is facing indictments over three corruption cases.
