Blue and White leader Benny Gantz promised victory in Tuesday's elections in a motivational speech to his supporters at his party's headquarters in Tel Aviv on Monday.

"We will replace the government because there is an urgent historical need," Gantz said. "Netanyahu is running a desperate campaign in order to overcome his legal problems and we won't let him."

Gantz added that "people realize that they have to make us the largest party, we are half a meter away from victory but we still need two more mandates. We will win."

Gantz was greeted by the supports with drums and chants of "here he comes, the next prime minister."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke live on his Facebook page on Monday calling for people to vote for Likud.

"Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid know they are leading, every poll says so as well, and they blatantly say so! Everyone has to vote Likud, otherwise we would have a Left government," Netanyahu claimed.

Netanyahu also related to past elections when he said that "I was there in 1992, when Rabin made promises and claims that identified with right-wing agendas and were more radical than Ittamar Ben-Gvir's Otzma, and what did we get? He signed the Oslo accords that brought thousands of terrorists into the West Bank."

"And then it happened again in 1999, when Ehud Barak was elected and the intifada began, where a thousand Israelis died," Netanyahu warned and stressed that Likud supporters who are not planning to vote because they are convinced of the Likud's success are wrong and must vote.
