Lapid slams PM for Finance Ministry offer

Ex-finance minister Yair Lapid slams Netanyahu for offering the treasury to Kahlon ahead of the election, arguing the move was “undemocratic.”

“In democracies, first you are elected, and then you give out positions,” Lapid tells Israel Radio.

He says that he is being attacked by Livni, Herzog, and Kahlon because they are “afraid” of Yesh Atid’s standing in recent polls.

Kahlon turned down Netanyahu’s offer earlier today.
