Ovadia Yosef calls on Ashkenazim to vote Shas

January 22, 2013 00:31

With the imminent opening of election booths, the Shas Party’s political and spiritual leadership issued their final campaign messages on Monday, along with a general call to get out the vote for Tuesday’s election.

Joint Shas leader Arye Deri returned to the two major themes of the party’s election campaign, protesting socioeconomic divides in the country and the preservation of the status quo with regards to matters of religion and state.

“The gaps in Israeli society are growing every year and it hurts me to hear and see these serious differences between those who have and those who don’t,” Deri said on Monday. “I came back to politics for the weak sectors of society, a sector which is growing and that has to chose between buying bread and buying medicine, between heating their homes and a buying a bus pass.”
