Yair Lapid will remain head of his Yesh Atid Party for longer than originally intended due to changes made in the party's bylaws, Yesh Atid officials confirmed Thursday night.

Channel 10's Raviv Drucker reported that Yesh Atid's charter originally said that the party's founding leader would remain in the post for two Knesset terms and then would have to be elected. But Lapid recently changed the bylaws to automatically remain in power for three Knesset terms instead of two.
