Shas Council to Convene to Determine Party’s Future in Coalition

It appears Rav Ovadia Yosef Shlita has given Shas leader Eli Yishai the green light to break away from the coalition over the monthly child allowance issue but before a final determination is made, the party’s Council of Torah Sages will meet towards the end of the week or immediate after Shavuos.

The council is headed by Rav Ovadia, and it also includes Rabbanim Shalom Cohen, Moshe Maya and Shimon Badani.

Recent meetings between Finance Minister Roni Bar-On and Shas leaders, including HaRav Ovadia Shlita, did not yield results. The Rav is adamant and is unwilling to compromise regarding his party’s demands to increase the monthly child allowance payments.
