Opposition chairman MK Yair Lapid on Saturday night criticized his former political partner, Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz.

"He really wants to be like Netanyahu and look like him. There is no one in the political system, including Gantz himself, who thinks the rotation really will take place," Lapid said in an interview with Channel 12 News.

Lapid spoke of a meeting he held with Netanyahu three days ago and said, "It was businesslike, respectful - what a meeting on security matters should look like."

At the same time, he was quick to attack the government's decisions so far, saying, "Their only decision was to establish 36 unnecessary ministries, the only law they passed is the Norwegian law, more budgets, more associates and more jobs."

Commenting on US President Donald Trump’s peace plan, Lapid said, "I support it but I'm against a unilateral annexation. I think it's a spin. There are no maps, the Americans are busy with their riots and coronavirus. What really happened is that Netanyahu understood that the discourse on the coronavirus and the economy was not good for him, so he changed the subject - and he's doing it well."

"This government is a foreign ruler - it doesn't care about the citizens," Lapid charged. "If they cared, they would not agree to convoys of Audis and inflated ministries.”
