JERUSALEM: Israel’s top court on Sunday struck down a decision to disqualify an Arab politician from running in next month’s parliamentary election.
The Israeli Supreme Court voted 5-4 to overturn the Central Elections Committee’s ruling to bar Heba Yazbak, a lawmaker from the Palestinian nationalist Balad party, saying there was no legal basis for Yazbak’s disqualification.
