Joint List leader Ayman Odeh vows all six of the predominantly Arab party’s lawmakers will back a bill to dissolve the Knesset when it comes up for a preliminary vote tomorrow.

“All six members of the Joint List will participate in the vote [tomorrow]. All of us will vote to dissolve the Knesset. Period,” he tells Channel 12 news.

The Joint List is comprised of three factions — Hadash, Ta’al and Balad. Odeh, who leads Hadash, and the head of Ta’al have both said their factions will vote for the measure, while Balad has not yet publicly commented.
