Shas MK Aryeh Deri set the record straight on Monday as to rumors that he was leaving the Knesset to run for mayor of Jerusalem.
"I hear people trying to update me on my political intentions based on various media reports. The only thing I am concerned with is the continuation of the Shas movement and its position in the war against brutal cuts and severe proposals planned." said Deri.
"Shas will be fighting in the opposition and will fulfill its promises to the voters even from the benches of the opposition. To the expectant bourgeois government: I will sounds in the Knesset the voices of those who other are trying to silence, I'l put a mirror to the face of the government and I will not cease until the class gap in Israel will cease to exist. "
