Lapid: We will turn the Knesset into a battleground from the opposition

In a speech to the press, Blue and White co-leader Yair Lapid talks up the party’s achievements, but admits defeat in the elections.

“We are not just going to the opposition, we are going to get ready for the next round,” he says. “We did not come here to end the 2019 campaign. We came to open the 2020 campaign.”

Lapid vows that leading the opposition, the party will “turn the Knesset into a battleground.”

He specifically mentions that the party will demand an investigation into the suspicions regarding Netanyahu’s links to a deal to buy submarines from a German shipbuilding firm.
