Meretz MK Esawi Frej announces that he will not run in the upcoming Knesset elections and is taking a break from the parliament, “but not from public life.”

In a tweet, Frej says he will work in full force for “the success of Meretz and the bloc led by Prime Minister Yair Lapid.”

He says he will try to persuade the Arab public “that it is important to vote for the future of the Arab society, the state and the partnership between its citizens.”
