The grand coalition suffered from instability, and the Labor Party tried to break up from the coalition and create a narrow coalition. Deri was part of those efforts. His friendship with Haim Ramon , a young and leading Knesset member from the Labor Party, brought negotiations between the sides, and at the end both parties agreed to overthrow the government and to create a government of Labor-Haredi instead. This agreement became practical with a motion of no confidence on March 15, 1990. This act overthrown the grand coalition, but 5 Knesset members on behalf of Shas party were absent from the vote. This agreement nicknamed " The dirty trick ". Two strong rabbis, Menachem Mendel Schneerson and Elazar Shach , strongly opposed to co-operate with the political left , caused the deal to fail, and the Labor Party chairman, Shimon Peres , didn't succeed to create a coalition. At the end, Yitzhak Shamir , Likud chairman, established a government of Likud-Right-Haredis , where Deri continued to serve as Interior Minister.
After the Labor Party, led by Yitzhak Rabin , won the elections in 1992, Shas party joined the coalition, and Deri continued to serve as Interior Minister, and, for the first time, as a Knesset member . He remained Minister of the Interior until May 1993, when he became a Minister without Portfolio, before returning to the Interior Ministry in June. He left the cabinet in September 1993. He was re-elected to the Knesset in 1996 .
