Yair Lapid is confident that his platform will enjoy the support of a growing number of voters in the next election, predicting hisיש עתיד (There is a Future) party will earn 22 seats or more in the next Knesset.
Speaking at a party function in Sderot, Lapid told supporters “This will be our year. We knew it and now everyone will know it and the country will be changed as a result.”
He told activists that he entered the political arena since he is one of those people “who cannot stand at the sidelines, but feels compelled to get in and make a change”. He reminded supporters that when his late father launched the Shinui Party he predicted receiving 15 seats, and no one believed him, but it was so.
