Balad doesn’t join other Joint List factions for meeting with Rivlin

MK Mtanes Shihadeh tells The Times of Israel that the members of the Balad faction within the Joint List are not attending the meeting with President Reuven Rivlin.

He says that his faction opposed recommending Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz, while the other three factions that make up the Joint List supported doing so.

There are three members of Balad on the Joint List: Shihadeh, Heba Yazbak and Sami Abu Shehada.
