Netanyahu Mulling Possible Coalition Without Lapid

Yesh Atid leader's boast that he could be PM soon annoys Netanyahu; Likud sources aren't rejecting a Lapid-less scenario out of hand.

Yair Lapid’s boast that he could soon become prime minister ‏riled the incumbent, leading to speculation about possible coalition combinations that would exclude Lapid’s Yesh Atid, the second-largest faction in the 19th Knesset. The Knesset is being sworn in on Tuesday.
