Opposition Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich (Labor) attacked Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Education Minister Shay Piron of Yesh Atid following reports stating they planned to increase the cost of tuition for students. “All the research shows that students’ cost of living
has risen greatly and is intolerable. So even before you touch something, you have the audacity to touch them?
“Old politics is to do the opposite of what you promised the public two minutes before. What did Riki Cohen expect from you? Did she imagine that Finance Minister Lapid and Piron would do what the government of Netanyahu did not do?” Yachimovich asked in a speech before a special convention on the subject, "Expected economic snippings."
