Der'i: I'll Waive Portfolio to Put Shas in Coalition

Co-chairman Aryeh Der'i of the Sephardic-hareidi Shas party made it clear, Thursday, that he was ready not to be a minister so that the party could remain in the government.

Interviewed by Channel 2 Television, the former interior minister said it was a possible compromise to allow Shas to sit in a government with the Yesh Atid party, which opposes the power held by the hareidi parties.
