Netanyahu said to form team seeking to disqualify Joint List votes, win Likud an extra seat

Prime Minister Netanyahu has reportedly formed a team that will search for potential mistakes and problems with votes for the Joint List, seeking to win a seat for the Likud party at the Arab party’s expense and shift the Knesset balance in his favor.

Currently, the Joint List has a buffer of some 2,650 votes, below which it loses its 6th seat.

The team, Likud sources say, is made up of Likud MK Amit Halevi, Religious Zionism MK-to-be Simcha Rothman and lawyer Michael Rabilo.
