The results of the 2019 election, held on Tuesday, show that the Israeli public maintains “significant trust” in Netanyahu, according to Barkat.
Former Jerusalem mayor and senior Likud member Nir Barkat was surprised by the celebrations Tuesday evening at Blue and White headquarters, where the party – the main challenger to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – had declared victory in the 2019 election.
The right-of-center bloc led by Netanyahu was clearly in the lead, showing the Israeli public’s “significant trust” in the prime minister and their desire to see him lead the next government, Barkat said.
Barkat’s message to Blue and White: Get used to serving in the opposition.
