Ra’am MK Mazen Ghanaim tells the Haaretz daily that he’ll vote against a bill extending Israeli civil and criminal law to citizens in the West Bank, further denting the coalition’s odds of passing the measure.

“I didn’t need to think it over too much — and no one influences me,” he says.

However, Ra’am chief Mansour Abbas tells the newspaper that “we’re still in deliberations” and nothing is final.
