Ahead of the upcoming elections, Yesh Atid Leader Yair Lapid reached out to the English speaking voters in Tel Aviv.

His audience was mostly warm and supportive.

Lapid agreed with one of the attendants saying Israel should review and be more cautious with who "do we sell arms to."

"People started realizing lately that Yesh Atid is the only party that can challenge Likud in the upcoming elections," Lapid said. "When seeing how certain parties do not reveal their agendas and the Labor party is collapsing, Yesh atid is the alternative."

Lapid claimed that the current government splits the nation in to Left and Right in every aspect but that he will not be that kind of Prime Minister.

While remaining evasive on many hard-core issues he pleased them with anecdotes from his time in the previous Netanyahu government and asked them to be proactive in helping him win the ballot as Israel’s next prime minister.
