Shas Leader Eli Yishai on Wednesday evening seemed confident that his party would sit in the government, but said that no matter which parties would eventually form the coalition, Israel's new government would not be very stable. The Shas leader told Channel 2 about his meeting with Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu, held on Wednesday afternoon, and said that they had discussed all the options for building a coalition. "However it turns out, the government will not be very stable," said Yishai. He seemed confident that his party would sit in the government, stating that although Likud could theoretically form a coalition without Shas, such a move would be impracticable.
