Lapid claims small parties already into Knesset, but Gantz says he’s lying

The Yesh Atid and Blue and White parties are involved in a heated tiff as they try to maneuver for the support of strategic-minded voters.

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid is claiming that internal numbers show all parties in his anti-Netanyahu bloc passing the threshold, meaning that those who had been voting for Blue and White or other small parties to help them get over the Knesset threshold hump no longer need to and can now vote for him.

But Blue and White disagrees.

“Lapid is lying, the danger has not passed,” a party representative says, according to Channel 12 news.

With the threshold only determined based on actual turnout and four hours to go until polls close, chances are that both are just spinning yarns for the voters.
