Blue and White co-leader Yair Lapid warned in a interview that if his party does not win five or six mandates over the Likud, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be the one to form the next government.

"Netanyahu is going home in July in any case," claimed Lapid, adding that "whoever is voting for him, is voting for Israel Katz."

After the latest polls showed a drop in the number of mandates for Blue and White, Lapid said that election polls fluctuate, but the party remains strong.

"We are in a state of emergency," said Lapid. "The only good thing is that we have two options: either a Netanyahu, [Otzma Yehudit member Itamar] Ben-Gvir [and MK Bezalel] Smotrich government - which will help Netanyahu in the indictment - or Blue and White, which will change the reality here."

Lapid lashed out at Netanyahu, claiming that "we have a prime minister who has lost all restraint and shame" and adding that "he lies as he breathes.

"A prime minister who lies, incites and slashes is not a prime minister with capabilities, but simply a person who turns this wonderful people [of Israel] into a bunch of tribes."
