Under the slogan "We're here to bring change," Yair Lapid launched the Yesh Atid Party campaign Sunday and introduced its list of candidates for the 19th Knesset.
The top six spots on Yesh Atid's roster went to: Chairman Yair Lapid, Rabbi Shai Piron, Herzliya Mayor Yael German, Dimona Mayor Meir Cohen, Former Shin Bet Chief Yaakov Peri, and Journalist Ofer Shelah.

After presenting his party members, Lapid told Ynet: "The signs here carry the slogan that accompanies Yesh Atid's election campaign – 'We're here to bring change,' and we're here to bring change because we can. The most fundamental thing you need in order to bring about change is belief that change is possible; and we will make it happen."
Lapid addressed the social issues on the agenda, saying: "The most interesting poll that was published this week showed that two thirds of Israeli parents say they don’t care if their children leave the country. That's disconcerting," Lapid said.
This is our place; we have no other place and this is the place we have to fight for. If we need an enemy, our enemy is old politics… covert deals, self-centeredness – it's ruining our lives – we have to fight it and change it. We need politics that works with the people and for the people."
