Dec. 29 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The former Prime Minister of Israel Yair Lapid has left his successor, Benjamin Netanyahu, a note in which he promises to continue working to return to power in 2024, on a day marked by the inauguration of the new Government and not exempt from polemics.
The leader of Yesh Atid himself has published on his social networks an image with the note, in which it can be read, in Hebrew: “Lapid-2024”. Last year, Netanyahu also left a similar message to his successor, Naftali Bennet, as he left office: “I’ll be back.”
Netanyahu has been invested again this Thursday as head of government, after a tense parliamentary session in which Lapid has avoided shaking hands with the conservative leader, according to ‘Times of Israel’. Both politicians, however, have held a meeting of about 45 minutes.
Netanyahu explained that it was a “good” and “complete” meeting and he hopes it will be repeated every month, despite the fact that during his time as opposition leader the current prime minister spent more than a year without seeing Lapid.
