"Yesh Atid is not afraid to sit in the opposition," said party MK Yaakov Peri Tuesday night after it was announced the Tzipi Livni's HaTnua signed a coalition agreement with Likud. 

"The right thing for this moment, and I'm willing to bet that this will continue, is that we stick to our principles and if we have to serve one term in the opposition, we will do so," he added in an interview on non-stop radio.

"I do not know what the plans of Netanyahu are, but if this is the direction, then it certainly suggests the direction of not entering the coalition," he added.
