The Director General of Beit HaNasi, Harel Tubi, will speak to all Knesset factions to inform them that the president intends to transfer the mandate for forming the government, as soon as possible, to Chairman of Kachol Lavan, MK Benny Gantz and to make available to him the 28 days allocated to do so under the law.

In a statement to the factions, the Director General of Beit HaNasi will announce that a faction seeking to convey its position before the president transfers the mandate to MK Gantz may do so in accordance with the prescribed time-limits, according to which the president is allocated three days after Prime Minister MK Netanyahu’s announcement to transfer the mandate to another MK.
