High Court judges Israeli Arab MK Zouabi eligible for re-election

An expanded High Court bench of nine judges overruled the Central Election Committee’s decision to disqualify MK Hanan Zouabi of the Balad party from running for reelection on Jan. 22. The High Court will disclose it reasons at a later date. A number of parties demanded Zouabi be disqualified because she was aboard the Turkish Mavis Marmara and collaborated with the attempt mounted by the Turkish IHH terrorist group to break the Israeli naval blockade against the Gaza Strip.
