A victory for Deri: Shas MKs promise to remain united

Shas MKs met in a hotel in Tel Aviv today and have promised not to split off from Shas. This includes Yaakov Margi and Nissim Zeev, two MKs thought to be allies of Yishai.

“We are loyal to the heritage of Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef and wish to strengthen the hand of our party leader Aryeh Deri,” they said.

While it appears that Yishai has already made up his mind to leave, the MKs haven’t given up hope and urged him to reconsider for the sake of Shas.
