    He will be demanding all the ministries he needs to lay the groundwork for an election victory of his own next time round rather than doing whats good for the country here and now. He will constantly be trying to undermine Bibi and threatening to bring down the government if he doesn't get his own way. If he thinks the time is right he will dream up a justifiable excuse anyway and pull out forcing an election in which he may have a good chance of winning. Lapid has made it very clear already his priority is to be the next PM nothing more so having him in the coalition is bad for the country as a whole because the man with second most seats after Bibi will be putting his ambition above anything else. Bibi should form a coalition with the religious, Bennet, Livni and Mofaz leave Lapid in opposition just making speeches and by the time the next election comes around if Labor ditch Shelly and get their act together they will take alot of his seats and he will discover people don't love him as much as he thought they did and so hopefully if he stays in politics this will bring him back to the realms of reality because right now power has gone to his head.
