Netanyahu can't give the premiership away

The news has been reporting that PM Netanyahu (or someone on his behalf) offered (or floated the idea that) Aryeh Deri might be Prime Minister for an initial term of 1 year and only after that will Netanyahu serve as Prime Minister in a rotation agreement. (Deri says he is not interested, though I don't know why not)

Another proposal reported on is that of Netanyahu trying to sway Benny Gantz to join his coalition with Gantz's 8 mandates, in exchange for a rotation agreement, but this time Gantz would serve as Prime Minister first. Gantz supposedly said no, though I don't know why. I guess that ship has sailed.

Another idea discussed has been having someone else form the Likud, maybe Yariv Levin, serve as Prime Minister first, in order to form a coalition, and then after a year switch to Netanyahu.

Basically, Netanyahu seems willing to offer the position of Prime Minister, and first in a rotation arrangement, to almost anyone with a pulse other than Naftali Bennett.

  1. If Deri accepted, that would be pretty "funny" -- first a prime minister who already served time in jail for public corruption, followed by a prime minister who was getting ready to serve time in jail for public corruption.
    Oy.
