The Central Elections Committee chairwoman and Supreme Court judge Miriam Naor said the Central Elections Committee is likely to discuss the possibility of disqualifying Raam-Ta’al MK Ahmed Tibi from running for re-election to the Knesset, due to an inflammatory speech he made praising martyrdom.

According to Basic Law: The Knesset, a candidate or party running for Knesset membership may be disqualified if it promotes “(1) negation of the existence of the State of Israel as the state of the Jewish people; (2) negation of the democratic character of the State; (3) incitement to racism.”
