The new Yesh Atid party will seek to change the system of government, party leader, journalist-turned-politician Yair Lapid wrote on his Facebook page Wednesday morning.

Addressing the influence of special interests in governance, equality in military service and the crumbling health system, Lapid made one of his first appeals to potential voters in the upcoming round of campaigning. "If you give us your voice it will be dedicated to what's really important: We will replace the system."
