The previous election President Peres chose Netanyahu over Tzipi Livni all though Livni's party had won more votes albeit only one, but she had won. We can not know what the outcome would have been if Livni had been given the chance to form a government. Netanyahu has had long enough to try to form a government. So Peres should give the young Lapid, and his Yesh Atid party a chance. If he fails, then it's back to the people.
