Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid on Thursday attacked Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich's decision not to join a coalition led by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, saying that she had "erased the chance to establish a Zionist government instead of a messianic government."

"Shelly Yacimovich, in a panic attack, erased today the chance to establish a Zionist government...that will not continue to give billions to yeshivas and distant settlements," Yesh Atid stated.

The statement added that Yesh Atid would not "sit like an ornament in a government of  haredim and the messianic Right or join a coalition that will continue to steal from the public coffers in the name of interest groups and extortionist sectors."
