Deri: Olmert is right person to fill in for Sharon

Former Shas chairman Arye Deri said Thursday evening in a Channel 10 interview that he felt Ehud Olmert was the right person to fill in for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. "He is one of the more experienced and talented politicians in Israel," he said, adding that "for Kadima to survive as a party, all of its members must unite behind Olmert."
