Yesh Atid party chairman Yair Lapid on Tuesday called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to dissolve the government and call new elections following the reported failure in talks to reach a compromise on replacing the Tal Law.

"We are ready for elections," Lapid said following news that Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz was expected to pull his party from the coalition.

"The time has come to remove this bad government from power," the Yesh Atid chairman said in a statement.

Netanyahu, he continued, failed in bringing about real change that would see equality in national service and the workforce. The prime minister, he charged, capitulated to haredi wheeling and dealing.
