Senior Ra’am official called to Kfar Maccabiah amid disagreements in coalition talks — report

The Kan public broadcaster reports disagreements in the talks between the parties that would make up the prospective “change government” and Ra’am, whose support will very likely be needed for the coalition to be sworn in.

Ra’am is the political wing of the Southern Islamic Movement, whose secretary-general, Ibrahim Hijazi, has been called to the Kfar Maccabiah hotel in Ramat Gan where party chiefs are meeting.

Entering the hotel earlier today, Ra’am chief Mansour Abbas said the Islamist party would be part of the coalition and expressed optimism a deal would be finalized, but stressed nothing is over until it’s over.
