dbo:abstract
  • Yesh Atid (Hebrew: יֵשׁ עָתִיד, lit., "There Is a Future") is a centrist political party in Israel. It was founded by Yair Lapid in 2012, and seeks to represent what it considers the centre of Israeli society: the secular middle class. It focuses primarily on civic, socio-economic, and governance issues, including government reform and ending military draft exemptions for the ultra-Orthodox. In 2013, the first election it contested in, Yesh Atid placed second, winning 19 seats in the 120-seat Knesset, far more than polls had predicted it would win. It then entered into a coalition led by Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud. In the 2015 election, the party refused to back Netanyahu; after suffering a significant setback, losing seats, it joined the opposition. On 21 February 2019, Yesh Atid united with the Israel Resilience Party to form a centrist alliance for the upcoming elections, which was called Blue and White. Yesh Atid and Telem left the alliance on 29 March 2020 and formed an independent faction in the Knesset called Yesh Atid-Telem. (en)
