Deri Rejects Charedi Union Initiative


Interior Minister Aryeh Deri today rejected an initiative to unify the charedi parties, claiming he had received no official proposal.

“Until this moment, I haven’t received an orderly proposal, so I can’t even reject it. I heard about it in the media,” Deri said in an interview with Army Radio, referring to reports about Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky’s grandson’s attempt to unite the three charedi parties.

According to him, in the meantime all the parties are only splitting up. “I only hear about splitting parties,” he said. “Today, the charedi parties are the only ones running on an ideological basis.”

  1. Deri shouldn’t even consider joining with the other Chareidi parties.A good portion of Shas’ support are Sephardim who aren’t Chareidi and if Shas becomes just an official part of a Charedi bloc, they’ll stop supporting it.
