Approximately 20 activists stood outside of Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid’s house on Wednesday morning as part of the initiative to unite the political center. Lapid greeted the protesters, commending them for their public involvement and even distributed hot tea for them.
“We are all that we need to make a connection,” Lapid told the protesters. “We can win these elections. It is good that you’re here, but in the end, these things are done quietly.”
The protesters responded to Lapid that it is his responsibility as a leader to start forming a union of the center camp. They also announced that further demonstrations will occur next to the homes of other center leaders.
Lapid announced in December that although he is open to coalition talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, if Netanyahu is indicted, he will not participate in a coalition with him
This is the second protest outside the house of the leader of a political center party. The same group protested outside of Benny Gantz’s house in Rosh Ha’ayin on Tuesday morning. Gantz is head of the Israel Resilience Party and in recent weeks has made few political statements.
The protesters on Tuesday carried signs and a gurney, calling for the former chief of staff to leave his ego aside and unite with the center leaders, who are running in the upcoming elections.
The protesters suggested that if these three leaders would unite their powers and refuse to participate in a coalition with Netanyahu following the upcoming elections, they would be able to win the elections and replace the prime minister.
