"Sharia was and will always be my first and final project and objective," Shater was quoted on Wednesday as telling a meeting of the Religious Association for Rights and Reform - a group of which he is a member, along with figures who belong to the hard-line Salafi school of Islam.
The Jerusalem Post reports that in a statement issued by Assosciation, Shater said he would establish a special entity to help the parliament achieve this goal.
