Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday of “buying” his way to a fourth administration while “making a mockery of the Knesset.”

Lapid, who was dismissed by Netanyahu from the finance minister’s position, triggering early elections and paving the way for Yesh Atid to be relegated to the opposition, spoke just hours after the High Court of Justice rejected his petition to prevent the Likud from expanding the size of the government.“Nobody denies the fact that Benjamin Netanyahu received the public’s trust and won the election,” Lapid told a meeting of his faction in the Knesset. “But he wasn’t elected to be the prime minister exclusively of his associates, or the prime minister of sectarian parties that help him buy power with money, or a prime minister who makes a mockery of the Knesset, and makes a mockery of the democratic process.”
