Opposition Leader and Chairman of Yesh Atid MK Yair Lapid, addressed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's statement on Sunday morning - in which he said that the decision by the Finance Committee to give him tax relief for work expenses "was justified, but done at the wrong time."
"The discussion is not justified because you do not deserve a million shekels from state coffers while there are hundreds of thousands of unemployed and many self-employed are on the verge of collapse," said Lapid.
"The timing is actually justified because it serves to remind everyone how much you and your government are disconnected."
