Anti-Israel Arab MK Set to be Disqualified from Running
Kadima on Tuesday informed the Knesset Election Committee that it would vote to remove MK Hanin Zםabi from the Balad candidate list for the upcoming Knesset elections. The proposal by MK Ofir Akunis (Likud) to de-list Zםabi is now set to pass, Commission officials said. If and when it does, Balad will be informed that Zoabi may not run, and if she remains on the list, Balad will lose her seat to another party.
