Deri calls for Zionist Union to join govt in light of Liberman’s decision to go to opposition

Shas chairman Arye Deri called on Monday for the Zionist Union to join the nascent government following the announcement of Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman not to join the coalition and go to the opposition benches.

Deri expressed optimism however that even if a government was established of just 61 MKs it could be as functional if not more so than a broader government.

Deri told the haredi news website Kikar Shabbat that the government faced stiff societal challenges and that there was an opening to cooperate on such issues if the Zionist Union would join the coalition.
