Following Shas chairman Eli Yishai's announcement Monday that Shas would endorse Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu, not Kadima leader Tzipi Livni, as the nation's next prime minister, Labor campaign chairman MK Ofir Paz-Pines on Tuesday called upon the opposition leader to "reveal his secret deal with Shas."
"We will have to pay a big price for whatever Netanyahu and Shas agreed to behind closed doors. A smart politician like Eli Yishai would not endorse Netanyahu two weeks before the election if he didn't have something in return already in his pocket," Paz-Pines said.
