‘Nonsense’: Yesh Atid denies involvement in breakup of Joint List
‘We have no idea who spread this nonsense or why,’ Lapid’s party says after Balad chief accused PM of orchestrating Arab-majority alliance’s split

Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party on Saturday denied any role in the breakup of the Joint List, after one of its former leaders blamed the premier for the Arab-majority alliance’s dissolution. “Yesh Atid and Prime Minister Yair Lapid were not involved in the split of the Joint List and we have no idea who spread this nonsense or why,” Yesh Atid wrote on its official Twitter page.

The Joint List’s split into separate slates came shortly before Thursday night’s deadline for parties to register their candidates. The three subfactions that comprised the Joint List — Hadash, Ta’al and Balad — had agreed to again run together a day before, but Balad reversed its decision to join the alliance in an 11th-hour move after a dispute over sharing one of its spots on the Knesset slate with Hadash and Ta’al.
