Yishai: Shas Will Veto Budget


Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor Eli Yishai met with heads of organizations representing disabled Israelis Sunday morning, during a demonstration against the 2008 budget by the groups in Jerusalem.

Minister Yishai told the group leaders that his Shas (Sephardic religious) party would oppose the budget in its present form.

“We will vote today against the budget, and we will continue the struggle against the budget cuts in the Knesset as well,” Yishai told the protestors.
