Interior Minister and Shas Chairman Eli Yishai said that his party would submit for Knesset action a law making it easier for low income Israelis to receive public housing. The bill would be submitted immediately after the reconvening of the Knesset for its winter session.
Yishai said that “the housing issue has become almost unbearable. Shas will operate on all levels and fronts to change the situation with the public housing law. An apartment need not be just a dream,” Yishai added.
