Shas calls Otzma Yehudit claims of deal with Ra’am ‘a complete lie’

In a statement, the Shas party calls Otzma Yehudit’s claim “a complete lie,” declaring that it has not made “any agreement with any Arab party or any opposition party to support the Rabbis Law” and expects to pass it with all 64 members of the coalition voting in favor in the Knesset plenum.

Otzma Yehudit chairman Itamar Ben Gvir is “spreading lies in order to blackmail Shas into accepting the appointment of rabbis he desires, or the appointment of one chief rabbi or another,” the ultra-Orthodox party says.

“Shas expects that the coalition agreement signed with it will be fulfilled, and if Itamar Ben Gvir decides to violate coalition discipline and vote against the law, the responsibility will be solely on him.”
