"We won't sit with a government that does not agree" to reform the governmental structure in ways which will stabilize governance, said Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid on Wednesday in another policy speech at the Citizens Empowerment Center of Israel in Tel Aviv.

In a speech following immediately after the reelection of US President Barack Obama, Lapid praised the American system of government in which the president is elected only once every four years and cannot be blackmailed by smaller parties who threaten to vote no confidence in the years in between.
