A new bill requiring columnist-turned-politician Yair Lapid to officially form a new political party within two weeks or pay a NIS 150,000 fine will be put to a vote by the Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday.

Knesset House Committee chairman Yariv Levin (Likud) and MKs Otniel Schneller (Kadima) and Daniel Ben-Simon (Labor) proposed legislation that would require any person or group that declares “in writing or in speech, clearly or through behavior” an intention to run for a Knesset seat without joining an existing party to officially form a new party within two weeks of the declaration.

Levin explained that the purpose of the bill is to ensure maximum transparency.
