The ruling party Likud issued a statement on Sunday blaming Blue and White's No. 2 Yair Lapid of thwarting all efforts to establish a unity government.
"The party has agreed to make great concessions, but Yair Lapid is still making every effort to prevent a unity government," read the statement. "If stops sabotaging the unity efforts, there is still a real chance to prevent further elections."
