Following a tour of the Jerusalem municipality this evening (Tuesday), Defense Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Bnei Gantz said that the chances of an election seem closer than ever, mainly due to the controversy and procrastination surrounding the transfer of the state budget. “That hourglass is running out. When an hourglass is going to run out, no one knows when the last grain goes down, but we are right towards its end.”

Ganz’s description of the hourglass that simulates the time left for the State of Israel until the election follows the question of one of the reporters present at the scene. Ganz explained: “The budget transfer process is time consuming and if we do not see it start and do not see it progress then we understand that it will not happen so it is a matter of not much time.”

The defense minister’s remarks come a few hours after he addressed Netanyahu directly during the Knesset debate on the normalization agreement with Bahrain. Gantz also used the hourglass metaphor there: “I joined you as an accomplice for the lives of the citizens of Israel and not as an accomplice to an economic crime against them. “The socio-economic disaster and doing what is right for Israel. There will be no external factor to intervene in this matter.”

Before speaking on the subject of the election, Ganz referred to the spread of the corona in Israel and said, among other things, that the government would seek to impose closures on red cities, in order to facilitate cities with lower morbidity. “We will impose a closure on more red cities so that we can open elsewhere.” The defense minister explained that one of the main problems in the process of cutting the contagion chains is the fact that civilians do not cooperate in investigations. “The people who answer our phone give us four or five cases where they have met people, this is not the whole picture. Just quick information with lots of testing, reliable reporting of the people and cooperation – will help us lower the morbidity downwards.”
