Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's main political rival, Benny Gantz, called Netanyahu to resign amid corruption charges.
Axar.az reports that Gantz, leader of the centrist Blue and White party and former military chief, said in a statement that Netanyahu "has no public or moral mandate to make fateful decisions for the state of Israel."
Gantz said that the indictment raises concerns that Netanyahu "will make decisions in his personal interest and for his political survival instead of the national interest."
After closely-fought elections in September, Netanyahu and Gantz failed to win enough votes to form a governing coalition.
The indictment shattered any hopes for a unity government. Israel now seems to head to the third round of elections in less than a year, for the first time in its history.
