Lapid annouces platform for premiership

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid used the platform of the annual Herzliya Conference Wednesday to outline his plans for the country should he be elected the next prime minister of Israel.

The conference has been used by leaders in the past to unveil new policies, most notably by then-prime minister Ariel Sharon, who announced his plan to withdraw from the Gaza Strip at the event in 2003. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address the conference Thursday.

"I am running for prime minister so Israel will return to be a country that inspires and overcomes challenges with accomplishments," Lapid told the crowd.
