Coalition Crisis Cancels Lapid Trip to OECD Meeting

Chairman Yair Lapid of the Yesh Atid party cancelled, Tuesday morning, his trip to a meeting of finance ministers from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris, citing the coalition crisis stemming from attempts to rewrite regulations on hareidi-religious induction to the Israel Defense Forces and other forms of national service.

Lapid was scheduled to leave in the afternoon. A statement from his office said he would stay until the crisis is settled.
