Labor, Tnufa fail to agree on joint run; Ra’am, New Economic Party file slates

The Labor party and Ofer Shelah’s Tnufa have failed to agree on a joint election run. There are some reports that Shelah, who is not currently expected to clear the threshold to enter parliament, will drop out of the race.

Meanwhile the Arab Ra’am party, having recent split from the Joint List, has filed its slate for the election. So has the New Economic Party of economist Yaron Zelekha, which is also not currently projected to pass the electoral threshold.
