Shas chairman Eli Yishai announced Wednesday that he has persuaded Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz to restore NIS 60 million in cuts to the Shas-controlled Interior and Construction and Housing ministries. The money will be used to help distressed local authorities and fund public housing.

"Local authorities in Israel and thousands of poor people who need housing were saved today from a sharp cut because of our uncompromising stance on their behalf," Yishai said.
