Aryeh Deri will return to politics ahead of the next election but he has not decided in what framework, the former Shas leader said Wednesday at a forum on matters of religion and state.

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni also participated in the event, held at the Kiryat Ono Academic College’s haredi campus.

Deri called for changing the political system, eliminating haredi parties, and instituting regional elections and a professional cabinet.

Livni was the first female speaker ever at the haredi institution.
