The Arab parties ran in the last Knesset election as part of the Joint List, which won 13 seats. As of January 2019, Ahmad Tibi and his Ta’al list are no longer part of the Joint List. The Joint List is the third largest bloc in the outgoing Knesset. Will the Arab parties unify and run again as part of the Joint List? How will this election be different from previous ones for the Arab sector? Who are the new Arab faces in the upcoming elections?
Mr. Darawshe will talk about the Arab participation in the upcoming election and on Arab- Israeli domestic issues and challenges.
Mr. Mohammad Darawshe, is a Shalom Hartman Institute faculty member and Director of Planning, Equality and Shared Society at Givat Haviva Educational Center. He is a leading expert on Jewish-Arab relations; he served as co-director of The Abraham Fund Initiatives and as elections campaign Manager for the Democratic Arab Party and later The United Arab List.
