Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu must present his plans to all of Israel, Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog said Thursday night, challenging the former to a televised debate.

"Why don't you want to debate me?" he asked in a video posted to Facebook. "What, are you afraid of me? Are your advisers telling you 'don't debate him?' Look, I just want to talk. You and me, in front of all the people of Israel."

Herzog asked the prime minister if he has anything new to offer after six years on the job, asking him what his economic and diplomatic plans are.

"Why don't you talk? You're actually good at talking," Herzog wondered.

The Zionist Union candidate for prime minister told Netanyahu to "say a place, say a time."

"The people of Israel are waiting," Herzog concluded.
