Israel's Gantz nominates himself to serve as parliament speaker
Israel's ex-military chief Benny Gantz, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's main rival, submitted himself Thursday as a candidate for speaker of parliament, a move that could lead to an emergency alliance between the two.

The parliament announced that Gantz was the only candidate to succeed Netanyahu ally Yuli Edelstein, who resigned as speaker under pressure Wednesday.

A formal vote electing Gantz is expected later Thursday.
