The ultra-Orthodox Shas party pans Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli for pushing to have the Tel Aviv light rail run on Shabbat, calling it an “election ploy.”

Michaeli is trying “to blur her complete failure in all respects during her time in office with a cynical election campaign at the expense of our beloved Shabbat and the Jewish nature of the state,” Shas says.
