Likud said set to reserve electoral spot for Arab educator Nail Zoabi

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party will likely reserve a spot on its electoral slate for Nail Zoabi, an Arab school principal from the village of Nein, as part of a push to attract Arab voters, according to Zman Yisrael, The Times of Israel’s Hebrew-language sister site.

Zoabi, who resigned several weeks ago from his educational post, is a supporter of Netanyahu and longtime Likud activist, and his Facebook profile features several pictures from a visit by the premier to his school several years ago.

Contacted by Zman Yisrael, Zoabi is not confirming nor denying the report.
