Ra’am still mulling position on Knesset dissolution

Joint List MK Mansour Abbas tells Army Radio his Ra’am faction has not yet decided whether to back a measure to dissolve the Knesset that’s set to come up for a vote Wednesday.

Abbas has been seen moving closer to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in recent weeks, drawing fire from the rest of the Joint List. He has defended the moves as pragmatic and in the best interest of the constituency of his Islamist faction.

“It’s too bad we haven’t learned from past experience and we are busy in just bringing down this government or another. Ra’am has not yet made a decision on tomorrow,” Abbas says.
