Justice Minister Yariv Levin calls the High Court’s ruling on Deri “absurd,” saying it effectively “annulled” the votes of those who elected him.

He says it “tramples over the votes not only of nearly 400,000 Shas voters, but also the will of the majority of Israeli citizens, who were aware of the relevant facts and voted for a government led by Benjamin Netanyahu in which Aryeh Deri would be a senior partner.”

Levin says he will “do everything necessary to fully repair the terrible injustice done to Rabbi Aryeh Deri, Shas and Israeli democracy.”
