Knesset member Michal Shir’s move from Gideon Sa’ar’s ‘Tikva Gadasha’ to Prime Minister Lapid’s ‘Yesh Atid’ has raised eyebrows among quite a few members of the political system.
Shir, who is not considered to have an electorate, was placed in a relatively high position, which made many wonder what was behind her agreement with Minister Yair Lapid.
News 12 reporter, Dafna Lial, reported this evening that on the eve of the dissolution of the government, before Bennett and Lapid dissolved the government in coordination, Lapid was looking for an MK from Bennett’s side to vote with Silman on the dissolution of the government, thereby guaranteeing Lapid’s tenure as prime minister of the transitional government.
According to a political source who spoke with Dafna Lial, Lapid and Shir were coordinated on the matter, and agreed that if necessary she would vote in favor of dissolving the Knesset.
Yesh Atid did not comment on the nature of the claims and said: “Michal Shir is an excellent Knesset member, and her joining the Yesh Atid list makes us very happy.”
