Likud ask AG to probe Palestinian Authority interference in upcoming election

The Likud party is asking the attorney general to probe reports that the Palestinian Authority is meddling in Israel’s upcoming election.

The request comes after Hebrew media reported that the PA’s General Intelligence chief Majed Faraj met with leaders of the majority-Arab Joint List party, in an effort to convince them to rejoin forces with the Islamist Ra’am party.

The reports said PA officials stressed to their Israeli counterparts that they do not intend to intervene in the November election and that any meetings with Arab lawmakers were not for that purpose.

But Likud says the meeting amounts to “a plot to influence the results of the elections and establish a government that will be supported by Ra’am and the Joint List.”
