Blue and White is considering making an offer to Gesher leader Orly Levy-Abekasis to leave her union with Labor under Amir Peretz and enter a top position in Blue and White ahead of the 2020 March elections, Kan 11 reported on Friday. 
In exchange, Blue and White demands that Labor and Meretz unite. This union of the two left-leaning parties is meant to create a strong Left-bloc since, at the moment, it is unclear if both parties will be able to win enough votes during the upcoming elections to survive politically. 
Labor leader Amir Peretz refused earlier suggestions to join ranks with Meretz. Levy-Abekasis also opposed the idea, citing a vast ideological chasm between her views regarding national defense and those of Meretz. 
It is likely that Blue and White expects that such a union of left-wing parties will work in its favor by agreeing to form a government led by Blue and White.
