Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz on Monday called on Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid, Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett, and New Hope chairman Gideon Sa'ar to sit down with him to negotiate a coalition which would replace Binyamin Netanyahu as prime minister.

Gantz urged his fellow party leaders to gather for a four-way meeting "in order to resolve the political tangle and find a way to replace Netanyahu," the statement said.

"I called on the leaders of the bloc of change to sit down as soon as possible so that we can form an honest government and stop Netanyahu's rule," he said.

Meanwhile, President Reuven Rivlin will begin the round of consultations with all parties ahead of his decision on whom to impose the mandate to form a government on April 5. The consultations will end on April 7.

The President's Office said: "At the end of the round of consultations, the President will, if necessary, invite the relevant candidates for the formation of a government, as will emerge from the recommendations of all the factions."
