While originally Greenblatt planned to stay until after the peace plan was published, its numerous delays have caused him to decide to announce his official resignation date
Due to the continued delay in the formation of a new government in Israel, Jason Greenblatt, US President Donald Trump’s special envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has finalized his departure date from the White House and will now leave at the end of the month.
Greenblatt announced in September that he would be stepping down from his role, but had originally intended to stay until the official rollout of the peace plan, which the White House had said would take place following the formation of a new government in Israel.
Since the election was held on September 17, there has been almost no progress in coalition talks.
The mandate to form a government, given to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last month, will expire on Wednesday night, after which President Reuven Rivlin is expected to give Blue and White leader Benny Gantz four weeks to attempt to form a government.
