      Yesh Atid Sources Upset with Livni Deal

      Yesh Atid is upset by colaiiton agreements signed between Likud-Beytenu and Tzipi Livni's HaTnua which guarantees two ministerial positions to Livni's party. 

      "Ma'ariv" reported on Wednesday that after the Jewish Home party expressed disappointment in the agreement largely because it guarantees Livni the sole responsibility for carrying out negotiations with the Palestinian Authortiy, Lapid is also coming out against the agreement.

      Senior officials from the party were quoted as saying that if they joined the government they would require a significant change in the agreement with Livni.

       "The agreement, as it is, clearly contradicts the substrate of Yesh Atid in regards to the number of ministers who will serve in the government," they explained.
