Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu worked on his speech to Congress and his challenger, Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog, spoke to Jerusalemites while Channel 2 broadcast eight party leaders debating without them.

Speaking at a night club at an event hosted by MK Erel Margalit, Herzog reiterated his challenge to Netanyahu to debate him. He faced questions about why he chose not to participate in the debate on television.

"I did not avoid a debate, but it had to be between Netanyahu and I," Herzog said. "He should stop avoiding a debate and stop being afraid of me."
