MK Moshe Gafni, who heads Ashkenazic-haredi United Torah Judaism, and MK Aryeh Deri, who heads Sephardic-haredi Shas, disagreed just minutes before sundown on Friday. The two parties generally work hand-in-hand in the Knesset; if one party joins a coalition, the other party joins as well, and they sit in the opposition together also. Speaking on Channel 12 News, Deri claimed that Gafni is trying to woo Prime Minister Yair Lapid of Yesh Atid, and Defense Minister Benny Gantz of Blue and White. Gafni's office responded, "There is no wooing by Gafni of Lapid and Gantz. We will go with the Likud and with [MK Benjamin] Netanyahu. Deri's hints on the matter have no basis in reality."
