United Torah Judaism leader Construction and Housing Minister Yitzhak Goldknopf says he and his party will continue to treat Shas chief Aryeh Deri as a minister, despite him being fired by the government following a High Court ruling.

“UTJ will work as much as it can and will be a partner to any move to quickly return him to the government table,” says Goldknopf in a statement. “In terms of our ministries [those under UTJ control], Deri will continue to be the [health and interior] minister and that’s how we will relate to him.”
