Shas leader says Netanyahu, Herzog would form unity government if they could

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Isaac Herzog would like to form a national unity government, but haven’t been able to, Economy Minister Arye Deri said in a briefing to the Knesset Correspondents’ Association Wednesday.

Deri is skeptical that there will be any changes in the current coalition, saying that Yisrael Beytenu and Yesh Atid do not want to join it, and Meretz and the Joint List certainly would not.

"What’s left is the Zionist Union. Both leaders [Netanyahu and Herzog] want Zionist Union in the coalition, but that is not enough," the minister sighed.
