Yair Lapid, chairman of Yesh Atid, sent a message to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, telling him, "we will not be just a decoration in the government. We will not sit in a government that does not solve the inequality and the burden of the difficult housing situation where a young couple can not afford to allow themselves to dream of an apartment."
When asked about Tzipi Livni, Lapid said: "Livni will not stay. Her plan, arguing that she is an alternative to Netanyahu, collapsed and crumbled into dust, and she will not sit in the Knesset as chairwoman of the opposition party with 8 seats as Vice Chairman of the State Control Committee. Instead, she will do what she always does - go home. We are however here to stay. No matter what happens in the next election, no matter if we sit in the coalition or the opposition, we will fight for you. Because we came to change things. "
