Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid on Wednesday levied harsh criticism on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for his proposal to raise the value added tax and implement budget cuts.

Lapid slammed the prime minister for making budget cuts and raising taxes while dedicating money to a government with a record number of ministers. "Netanyahu lives in a giant villa with 35 departments and now he has decided the time has come to give a pay cut to the servants," he wrote on his Facebook page.

The former television broadcaster called on Netanyahu to cut his government to 18 ministers and stop wasting billions on unnecessary political appointments at the expense of the middle class.
