Shas MK Yishai reportedly set to leave faction

Former Shas chairman MK Eli Yishai was reportedly set to leave the ultra-Orthodox party, Israeli media reported Friday.
The report comes days after Shas chairman Arye Deri declared on Monday that unity had been achieved within the party, referring to the long-running feud between himself and Yishai.
Deri was thought to have offered Yishai the No. 2 spot on the party’s electoral list as well as a ministerial portfolio should Shas join the next government.
