Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday blamed his governmental partner Shas for rising housing prices, saying he would retain control of the influential Construction and Housing M
inistry in the next Knesset, in an interview with Channel 10.
"I don't have the [Construction and] H
ousing Ministry," Netanyahu said in response to a direct query over rising prices. "I have agreed with (Yisrael Beytenu head Avigdor) Liberman. We will take back the ministry (next Knesset)." Shas's Ariel Attias is the current housing minister.
