Deri could quit Knesset if Shas heads to opposition — report

Shas leader Aryeh Deri could quit the Knesset if his ultra-Orthodox party ends up in the opposition, the Ynet news site reports, citing the interior minister’s close associates.

In such a scenario, Deri would continue to lead the Shas party from outside parliament, the report says.
