Lapid to propose disbanding Knesset: ‘Nothing good will come of this government’

Opposition leader Yair Lapid says he’ll lead a proposal next week to disperse the Knesset

“The bill will come to a vote. It is time for elections,” he says in a statement. “Netanyahu wants elections in June so he’s playing for time. There is no reason to let him go to elections at the time that’s convenient for him.

“It is time for elections. Nothing good will come of this government. It is a group of politicians focused only on themselves, on their own jobs, on their petty arguments. They’re not working for the people of Israel, they’re only working for themselves.”
