Joint chief of Shas Eli Yishai wrote on his Facebook page today that whoever comes to serve the public "can do so from anywhere" hinting at his party's willingness to sit in the opposition.

Referring to reports that Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid party and Naftali Bennett's Bayit Yehudi would not sit in a government with his party, Yishai  added that he was upset over attempts by some elements "to come out against the world of Torah and its representatives." Both Yesh Atid and Bayit Yehudi are demanding that haredim share state burdens more equally with the rest of the population.
