Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the public live on social media on Tuesday and warned that the elections "are not a game: [this is] the fate of the country." Speaking with a hoarse voice, Netanyahu asked: "Who will form a defense pact with the US" if not him. "[Blue and White leader Benny] Gantz will do it? He already said he'll carry out the policies of Meretz and Labor, [and] they're against it." Netanyahu presented viewers with a poster of cities in Israel titled "Strongholds of the Left" and claimed that such cities will outvote the cities with a Right leaning public. "Don't buy this lie spread by the media as if I'll take these elections in a stroll," he warned, "each person must ring up twenty people, bring two other people to the voting station with you." "Don't go to the beach," he said: "Go vote and then go to the beach."
