Ra’am party chief says he ‘isn’t in the pocket’ of either Knesset bloc

Mansour Abbas reacts to the updated vote tally, which sees him entering the Knesset, stressing once again that he isn’t “in the pocket” of either the pro-Netanyahu nor the anti-Netanyahu parliamentary blocs.

“We are willing to negotiate with both sides, with anyone interested in forming a government and who views themselves as a future prime minister,” Abbas tells Radio 103FM. “If there is an offer, we’ll sit and talk.”
