Lapid: We Are Not on the Same Page as Labor and Livni


Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid said at an event Monday that his party would not necessarily participate in an “automatic block” coalition that Tzippy Livni was trying to organize. After meeting with Livni and Labor Party head Shelly Yechimovich, Lapid said at an election discussion that he accepted the polls that said the Binyamin Netanyahu would be forming the next government – and that instead of futilely trying to prevent that, it would be better to enter the government as a “middle balance” against the rightwing parties Netanyahu was likely to recruit for his government.
