Israel: Leader of Joint List of Arab parties Odeh casts his ballot in general election

Israel, Haifa
September 17, 2019 at 10:06 GMT +00:00 · Published

Ayman Odeh, the leader of Joint List, cast his vote in the Israeli general election in Haifa on Tuesday.

Footage shows Odeh arriving at the polling station, where he greeted the voting staff, before casting his ballot.

"First, we want to do our part to replace this regime. Secondly, we are not supporting anyone in advance. There is the national issue and not only, cancelling the Nation-State bill, the house demolition bill, a general plan against the violence and crime in the Arab society. Those issues are critical for us, so first we want to hear [the suggestions] and then we will decide responsibly," said the Joint List candidate.

Joint List is a political alliance that comprises of four different Arab-dominated parties.

New general elections are held this Tuesday in Israel for the second time in less than six months.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who failed to form a coalition government after the first election, is now trying to win a record fifth term.
