Lapid: Left can’t win an election – I’m running for prime minister

Yesh Atid will not join a government led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu under any circumstances, party chairman Yair Lapid said in a briefing to Knesset reporters Monday.

Lapid said that even if UTJ leader Health Minister Ya’acov Litzman agrees to sit around the same cabinet table as him, he won’t join the government, and predicted that the coalition will fall apart sometime in 2016.

"Yesh Atid will run for the leadership of the country and I will run for prime minister," Lapid stated.
