Former leading health official Eitan Hai-Am quit Yesh Atid on Saturday, bringing the first signs of trouble to the list since media reports carried a possible version of the party's top 15 in election for the Knesset on Friday.
Hai-Am was previously director-general of the Health Ministry and achieved national recognition fighting on behalf of doctors with the ministry's political level.
He had been listed in media reports as number twelve on the potential Yesh Atid list.
While Hai-Am did not confirm media reports that his low placement was the reason for his resignation, his resignation did occur right after the supposed list was published and Yesh Atid did officially confirm that he had resigned from the list, although it added that he would continue, on some level, to support the party.
