Former Shas leader Aryeh Deri on Wednesday announced that he will return to politics in the next election.
Speaking at a panel at the three-day Presidential Conference in Jerusalem, Deri said he plans to run with a party that won't be religious, but at the same time he would like to run with a party that includes Sephardics because "we were discriminated against."
"This time I want to use my experience to build unity," he said, adding that he learned from his experience in politics that "you have to think things through and not jump into thing."
The former Shas leader said he will not lead the religious party again.
