The secularist-centrist Yesh Atid party headed by former finance minister Yair Lapid announced on Friday that it will ask the High Court to block Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to expand the number of government ministers in his new cabinet.

In a preliminary letter addressed to the attorney-general and the speaker of the Knesset, the party wrote: “The truth needs to be said and heard - the prime minister is exploiting the fact that the head of the legislative branch is a member of his party. Otherwise, he would not dare make such harmful and vital changes to the Basic Law by way of an edict passed by a transitional government if he thought he could do so in the proper way.”
