Lapid slams unity government deal

Yesh Atid-Telem leader Yair Lapid slams the unity government deal signed between Likud and Blue and White.

“So the compromise on the Judicial Appointments Committee is that Bibi [Netanyahu] chose all its representatives. Gantz and [Blue and White MK Gabi] Ashkenazi agreed to allow the criminal defendant to appoint the judges that will judge on his matters,” tweets Lapid, referring to the premier’s indictment on graft charges.

Yesh Atid-Telem ran as part of the Blue and White alliance in all three elections over the past year, before breaking with Gantz over his appointment as Knesset speaker with the backing of Netanyahu’s political allies.
