Yishai: Willing to Join Coalition and Not be a Minister


Minister Eli Yishai (Shas) said on Thursday that his party would be willing to join the government without its members being appointed as ministers if it means that hareidi yeshiva students will not be drafted into the army.

“We are prepared to be in the government without being ministers, if it means we get to find a solution for the yeshiva world,”  Yishai said in an interview with the hareidi radio station Kol Barama.

“We are doing everything we can to enter the coalition, we are looking for any way to get inside the coalition,” he stressed.
