Yitzhak Peretz, Aryeh Deri, Eli Yishai, Ariel Atias
Shas was included in the government for the first time in the national unity government formed after the 1984 elections. The first Shas members to serve as ministers were Yitzhak Peretz and Aryeh Deri. In 1990, Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir formed a narrow government in which Shas had three ministers, with Raphael Pinchasi joining Peretz and Deri. After the change in government in 1992, Shas entered the government of Yitzchak Rabin, with Aryeh Deri serving as a minister. Deri resigned from the government in September 1993, after the signing of the Oslo Accords, when an indictment for fraud was brought against him. Shas then remained outside the government until the election of Binyamin Netanyahu as prime minister in 1996. Two members of Shas served as ministers in the first Netanyahu government – Eli Yishai and Eli Suissa. In the wake of Shas's success in the 1999 elections, the party joined the coalition headed by Ehud Barak and received four cabinet positions. Shas left the coalition due to disagreements with Meretz and Barak's participation in the Camp David Accords. After Ariel Sharon's victory in the 2001 elections, Shas joined his first government. After the 2003 elections, however, Shas chose to remain in the opposition rather than to sit in the same government as the Shinui party. Shas returned to the coalition headed by Kadima, with four of its members serving as ministers in Ehud Olmert's government. Shas also had this level of representation in the second Netanyahu government. Shas did not join Benjamin Netanyahu's 3rd government but returned to his 4th government (took office in May 2015), receiving two ministerial positions.
