    Shas, Israel’s religious Sephardi party, has announced its official list for the upcoming Knesset elections.

    Interior Minister Eli Yishai was awarded top spot by the party’s Council of Torah Sages.

    Aryeh Deri came second and Ariel Attias won third place.

    In an interview with Ynet on Wednesday, Mr Deri denied that he was running for the top position.

    “I came in order to serve the movement and to serve the public. I will accept whatever the Council of Torah Sages decides,” he said.
