Yair Lapid said Wednesday that he will not invite ousted Kadima leader Tzipi Livni, or any other senior politician, to join a his yet-to-be-formed political party.

Responding to one of his Facebook followers' call for him to add Livni to his party's list, the journalist-turned-aspiring politician wrote: "As I've explained in the past, no senior politician will be in my party."

All over the world, Lapid continued, when politicians fail "they are replaced with new people who have new ideas."
