Lapid welcomes Herzliya, Dimona mayors to Yesh Atid party

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid on Monday officially presented two new candidates running on his party's list: Herzliya Mayor Yael German and Dimona Mayor Meir Cohen.
German, formerly a Meretz member, has served as Herzliya's mayor since 1998, when she became the city's first female mayor. Cohen was elected as Dimona mayor in 2001, when he was at the time aligned with Yisrael Beiteynu.
Lapid said that the two additions to his party, "deal daily with the bureaucracy that wears down the citizens of Israel." During the press conference an emphasis was placed on a central element of Yesh Atid's platform: the need to change the political system in Israel.
