Lapid: Whoever doesn’t back no-confidence measure ‘is a coward’

Opposition Leader Yair Lapid calls on fellow MKs to back his Yesh Atid party’s “constructive no-confidence” vote, which would see the current government replaced with an alternative one.

“Whoever doesn’t vote in favor of this proposal is a coward,” Lapid says at a Knesset faction meeting. “This government is not fit to lead the [coronavirus] crisis.”

Without the support of the coalition’s Blue and White party, the measure is seen as having little chance of passing.
