Likud MK David Bitan says his party has not yet decided how it will vote on extending the Palestinian family reunification law.

Bitan tells Kan radio that “we still haven’t decided how to vote. We could vote in favor of the law if the coalition proves that it is prepared to work with us on the Basic Law on immigration, and if the coalition has not promised [to others] anything beyond what is stated in the law.”

The legislation, which first passed in 2003, bars the automatic granting of citizenship to Palestinians who marry Israelis. The bill is slated to come up for a Knesset vote tomorrow ahead of its expiration on Tuesday.
