Netanyahu is leading Israel to unnecessary elections.

Yair Lapid

So says Yesh Atid, an Israeli party headed by former journalist Yair Lapid. Yeah Atid in English means “there is a future”.

Their full statement to J-Wire:

He chose to act without consideration for the national interest and to place the needs of the Israeli public at the bottom of his list of priorities. Netanyahu prefers a deal with the ultra-orthodox parties to bring forward the elections above the interests of the wider Israeli public. The Israeli public now understands that at the head of the government is a Prime Minister who doesn’t carry out his promises. A Prime Minister who prefers his person survival to their interests.

The demands by the Prime Minister to Yesh Atid expose his political intentions and his debt to the members of the Likud central committee and external interests. The Prime Minister prefers to drag the market through elections which will bring the economy to a halt, burden the market, stop the reforms currently in the works and deny young couples in Israel the opportunity to buy an apartment of their own.

The Chairperson of Yesh Atid, Yair Lapid, is committed to continue fighting for the citizens of Israel and the public’s right to a socially aware budget with billions of shekels towards education, health, welfare and internal security, without tax rises and with a comprehensive housing plan for young couples.
