Ra’am chairman Mansour Abbas is readying for the party’s upcoming primary elections and is warning those interested in running for spots on the Islamist party’s slate that he’ll be expecting total loyalty to the coalition if the faction decides to join the government once again, Channel 12 reports.

Abbas struggled to keep his party’s three other MKs in line, with a pair voting against the coalition in key votes on several occasions. Accordingly, he is hoping to put together a list of candidates that will be prepared to sit in governments that may have to make controversial decisions vis a vis the Palestinians, Channel 12 says, explaining that the Ra’am chair has given candidates specific examples of legislation that they’ll be expected to back.
