    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, SEPTEMBER 19 - The leader of the Blue and White party, Benny Gantz, said he will be the prime minister "of the next unity government" in Israel, following an appeal by Benjamin Netanyahu to meet and form a unity government.

    "We will lead a broad and liberal unity government, chaired by me," Gantz said.

    "Blue and White won the elections and will lead negotiations," he said.

    Netanyahu promptly responded to Gantz's statements.

    "I was surprised and disappointed by the fact that Gantz still refuses to take up my appeal for a meeting," Netanyahu said.

    "This is what citizens expect," he said.

    The leader of Israel Beiteinu, Avigdor Lieberman, directly addressed Netanyahu and said it is time to "stop political shortcuts and gimmicks".

    "Let's try to sit together - you, Gantz, and me - and form a broad, liberal national government," Lieberman said.(ANSAmed).
