Yisrael Beytenu ministers will control the interior and construction and housing ministries that are currently led by Shas, Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman vowed in a speech at the Sderot Conference Wednesday.
Liberman confirmed a report by Ben Caspit published in The Jerusalem Post Friday that the two Shas ministries would be among his demands. Liberman has declined to respond to the rest of the report, which said that he would ask for the Finance Ministry for himself, rather than go back to being foreign minister.
