In Yesh Atid’s biggest election event since the party’s establishment, according to a party spokesman, leader Yair Lapid predicts that the party will once again surprise people on election day.
“I don’t deal with political forecasts or political analysis but I know the Yesh Atid street. We’ve been through this once before and so we can identify it this time as well. It’s even stronger than last time. It happened under the radar again, and again exactly at the right time it’s exploding with a force that no-one could have predicted.”
The party took 19 seats in the 2013 vote, beating pre-election predictions by a wide margin and becoming the second largest party.
Lapid also launches a strong vollay against Prime Minister Netanyahu – whom he still refuses to rule out as a future boss in a right-wing coalition.
“For a better future here one important thing needs to happen on Tuesday. This Tuesday needs to be Netanyahu’s last day as Prime Minister of Israel. Not because he’s right wing, not because he’s from the Likud, but because he doesn’t care. Because he stopped caring about the citizens of Israel and all he cares about is his job, and his motorcade and to keep a bullet proof glass wall between him and the real problems of the people of Israel,” he says
