Yamina chief Naftali Bennett spoke concerning the swiftly approaching elections in an interview on 103FM on Sunday, addressing the matters of Otzma Yehudit, voter fraud and Blue and White chief Benny Gantz.

Bennett mentioned that what bothers him about Otzma Yehudit is that “individuals will vote for them and can remorse that they wasted their votes. We’re preventing for our survival proper now. I urge everybody who desires a right-wing authorities to not keep dwelling and to not vote for events that will not move the brink.”

I requested Lawyer Itamar Ben Gvir that in case you – with all of your political expertise did not move the brink – how he intends to move.

“We discovered our lesson. Nobody even imagined that we would not move. A celebration that’s far much less vital than that of Ben Gvir can waste 100 thousand votes. How will the one who votes for Otzma Yehudit really feel that as a result of him we lack a Jewish authorities.”

A Maariv investigation revealed voter fraud which wasn’t investigated. Is it attainable that that is the place your misplaced votes went?

“We did not examine these voting stations. Analyzing the voting stations took a very long time. What I can say is that if that they had disqualified the voting stations that have been worthy of being disqualified, Balad wouldn’t have handed the brink and a right-wing authorities would have been established. The tempo of voting at a voting station permits 30 individuals to vote per hour. I noticed many stations the place 80-100 individuals voted in the midst of an hour. I haven’t got proof of fraud however that is not possible.”

One in every of our political commentators mentioned that even when the fitting obtains 61 mandates, you will select to do what [Yisrael Beyteinu chairman Avigdor] Liberman did and trigger plenty of issues for Netanyahu.

“No. I’ve mentioned clearly from the start of the marketing campaign that we’ll advocate Netanyahu. We won’t select Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid as prime ministers. I sat within the Cupboard throughout Operation Protecting Edge when the IDF Chief of Workers was Benny Gantz and his efficiency was horrible. He did not current any plan.”

Give me a selected instance of how Gantz’s efficiency was horrible.

“On June 30, 2014, I instructed the Cupboard that there have been about 32 terror tunnels from Gaza into Israel and requested what the plan was. I offered a preventive plan that the IDF ought to have offered. Gantz opened his mouth and mentioned we needn’t fear about it, that they will not use the tunnels. We will permit an individual like this to bear the accountability for Israel’s nationwide coverage? Netanyahu can be culpable to a level as a result of he was the prime minister on the time. But when the IDF Chief of Workers and the Protection Minister do not current a plan how can we count on otherwise from the prime minister?
