Israeli opposition leader calls for an immediate election saying that Netanyahu is no longer qualified to lead a state


Israeli opposition leader Yair Lapid said on Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “is no longer qualified to run the state,” calling for elections to be held immediately.

He added in a post on X, “A prime minister is no longer qualified to run a country… For the sake of security, and for the sake of victory in Gaza, we need elections now”.

In recent weeks, Netanyahu has repeatedly affirmed his refusal to hold elections in light of the war, while he has faced local and international criticism regarding his position on the continuation of the war while Israeli detainees are falling dead in the Gaza Strip without clear indications of an agreement guaranteeing their return.

Lapid continued, “Netanyahu said this week that the elections now are the dream of our enemies; On the contrary, sir, our enemy’s dream is for you to continue serving”.

Lapid considered that Israel has two options: a bad, dangerous, disintegrating and toxic government, or elections that lead to a good government that will restore security to the people of Israel.

He continued, “There is nothing that frightens (Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar) and (head of the Hamas political bureau Ismail Haniyeh) more than the fact that there will be an effective, safe and effective Israeli government”.

Lapid accused Netanyahu of running a campaign against Israeli security leaders to blame them for the October 7, 2023 fiasco in the Gaza Strip rooms.

In recent months, Netanyahu has repeatedly refused to bear any responsibility for the failure of last October 7.

A number of Israeli securities, military and political leaders announced in recent months that they bear personal responsibility for what they said was an “intelligence, military and political failure” that resulted in Hamas’ sudden attack on 22 towns and 11 military bases adjacent to the Gaza Strip on October 7.
