Joint List party chief Ayman Odeh hails Meretz MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi’s decision to leave the razor-thin coalition.

In her resignation letter, Rinawie Zoabi slammed the government as too right-wing and said it was treating her community — Arab Israelis — poorly.

“Most of the public wants [Arab-Jewish] partnership. But for that to happen, the sane majority must separate from the extreme right,” Odeh comments.

“We won’t be second-class partners,” Odeh adds.
