Lapid: Tasking Netanyahu to lead government a ‘stain on Israel’

Reacting to the president’s decision to task Benjamin Netanyahu with forming a government, Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid admits that Reuven Rivlin’s hands were essentially tied.

But at the same time, he adds on Twitter that “it is a shameful sign of disgrace that is a stain on Israel and casts an embarassing shadow on our status as a law-abiding state.”
