Asia Politics

Key rivals of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have formed an alliance to contest general elections in April.

In a statement, the Resilience party said that Benny Gantz, Yair Lapid and Moshe Yaalon have decided to field a joint list of candidates.

In event of an election victory, they would form a new Israeli ruling party.

Gantz and Lapid agreed to each serve as prime minister for half of the five-year term if they win.

In anticipation of the opposition alliance, Netanyahu has orchestrated a merger of far-right parties to help him win re-election.
