Deri on Lapid: Act Responsibly


MK Aryeh Deri (Shas) was quick to respond on Thursday evening to the remarks made by Yesh Atid chairman MK Yair Lapid, according to which he does not intend to be photographed as a coalition member alongside a minister from Shas.

"He is not aware that public life is not run according to the camera’s zoom function, and a person who has the good of the state and the integrity of the people in mind does not deal with photography or with boycotts, but acts responsibly to address the important challenges of the nation and the state," said Deri.

He added that "Shas will continue to act with responsibility and sensitivity on all important issues, economic and social, in order to reach a broad consensus."
