Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Thursday was named in the top spot on the Shas party list for the 19th Knesset elections, putting an end to rampant speculation that rival Aryeh Deri would be placed above him.

Tensions had been rising in Shas over the final placements on the party’s electoral list. Shas does not hold a primary election, so the order of candidates on the party list is chosen by the party’s Council of Torah Sages, which is comprised of Yosef and rabbis Shimon Badani, Shalom Cohen and Moshe Maya.

Aryeh Deri was placed second on the list, with Ariel Attias taking the third spot.
