Shas chief Aryeh Deri and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have struck a deal to appoint a Shas insider as the next Israeli consul to Los Angeles, according to the Kan public broadcaster.

Israel Bachar, who served as a senior political strategist with the Shas party in the most recent election, will reportedly be tapped for the position in the coming weeks.

Bachar, who would replace outgoing envoy Hillel Newman, has worked for several other party’s campaigns in the past.
