The Blue and White party received the backing of another IDF chief of staff Sunday, former Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz.

Mofaz joins former chiefs of staff Benny Gantz, Moshe Ya'alon and Gabi Ashkenazi, who are the first, third and fourth candidates on the Blue and White list for Knesset in Tuesday's election.

Blue and White also received an endorsement from former minister Dan Meridor, who was finance minister in Netanyahu's first term and was Prime Minister Menachem Begin's cabinet secretary.

Both Mofaz and Meridor were ministers in Likud but Mofaz left for Kadima and Meridor for the Center Party.

They will both speak at a Blue and White rally in Tel Aviv on Sunday night.
