Lapid: Livni's Ego Got the Best of Her

Yesh Atid party chair Yair Lapid commented on Tzipi Livni's announcement Tuesday that she would establish her own center - left party called "The Movement."
"I did everything in my power to bring about a unification of forces, but for reasons of ego, Ms. Livni refused all of our offers," Lapid said. "Israel does not need another center party. It splits, it weakens the center, and it is mostly unnecessary. I do not usually attack other leaders, so I will just note that in this case my hands are clean."
