Mansour Abbas secures another term leading Ra’am, as the party’s umbrella movement — the Southern Branch of the Islamic Movement — approves his leadership with 85% of support from voting members of the Movement’s general assembly.

Lawmakers Walid Taha and Iman Khatib-Yasin also secure their second and fourth spots on Ra’am’s Knesset list, respectively. Taha carried 92% of the vote and Khatib-Yasin 82%.

Earlier in the evening, Ra’am’s Knesset faction director Waleed Alhawashla clinched the party’s third spot.
