DescriptionIsrael’s president will give the former military commander Benny Gantz the first opportunity to form a governing coalition, presenting a serious challenge to caretaker prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's claim to the premiership.

Mr Gantz, who has faced off against Mr Netanyahu in three elections since April 2019, appears to have brought together an unlikely grouping of rival politicians who have set aside deep ideological divisions to try to topple the veteran Mr Netanyahu.

The Joint List of Arab Parties has thrown their support behind Mr Gantz, who during the election campaign bragged about bombing the Gaza Strip. Avigdor Lieberman, a secular rightwinger, and nearly all the members of the Labour and leftwing parties also agreed to support Mr Gantz.

Netanyahu will still be Prime Minister by the end of the day.
