Ra’am MK says will vote against renewing family unification law no matter what

Ra’am MK Mazen Ghanaim tells The Times of Israel that he will vote against renewing the 2003 ban on Palestinian family unification no matter what.

“A solution for 1,000, 2,000 families, that’s not a solution. We’re talking about tens of thousands, and this is first and foremost a humanitarian issue,” Ghanaim says.

The Ra’am MK emphasizes that there is no acceptable compromise to him on the issue.

Senior Islamic Movement official Masoud Ghanaim agrees, telling The Times of Israel: “This law must be voted against, come what may.”

Ra’am party chair Mansour Abbas has publicly sought middle ground with his right-wing partners on the law, which has become a test of the new government.
