Lapid pans ‘circus’ government as Deri sacked, Religious Zionism boycotts cabinet meeting

Opposition Leader Yair Lapid calls the government a “circus” in his response to the firing of Shas leader Aryeh Deri from his ministerial roles, plus Religious Zionism’s boycott of the weekly cabinet meeting.

“In the government meeting today they fired Minister Deri because of corruption, but what about the Religious Zionism ministers who were absent, protesting the defense minister who abides by the law,” Lapid says.

“The elderly, students, the cost of living, violence on our streets, parents, and youth. Israeli citizens don’t need to pay the price of corruption and the insanity of this government,” he adds.
