Ousted Shas MK refuses to give up Knesset seat – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

The Shas leadership ousted Chaim Amsellem from the party on Monday, but the so-called renegade lawmaker continues to make waves. Amsellem has made clear he intends to hold fast to his Knesset seat, one of 11 the ultra-Orthodox party holds.In an exclusive interview to appear in Friday’s edition of Haaretz, Amsellem dismissively refers to the movement as “a Lithuanian-Sephardic party,” a reference to what he believes is its habit of adopting Ashkenazi – and in his opinion, negative – ways of life.
