Shas gives Deri more authorities
Shas has appointed Aryeh Deri, number two on the party's Knesset ticket, to be the party's official delegate in the place of Eli Yishai. The significance of the decision is that a number of responsibilities which had previously been Yishai's have now shifted to Deri's responsibility.


According to the website Kikar HaShabat, the decision is part of the party's mutual management model. (Akiva Novick)
