Joint Shas leader Arye Deri said on Army Radio this morning that his party wants Binyamin Netanyahu to be the next prime minister and that Shas will join him in government, but claimed that only his party would fight with Netanyahu to protect the weaker sectors of society.

Tensions between Shas and Likud have risen in recent days over Netanyahu’s comments that he intends to wrest the Housing Ministry away from Shas and give it over to the Likud-Beyteynu party in the next government.

But Deri reiterated Shas’s message that they would not condition entry into the government on receiving any particular ministry.
