Among Blue & White’s demands as per those involved in the talks are; Shabbos public transportation, civil marriages and approval of the draft law, the version approved by the defense minister, the one rejected by the chareidi parties in the last Knesset, KAN 11 & 13 News reported.

Gantz wrote that “Blue & White comes to negotiations with an open heart and soul”.
