Adalah - The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel issued a response today, Tuesday, 13 August 2019, to the request filed by Attorney Itamar Ben Gvir and the Otzma Yehudit ("Jewish Power") party to the Central Election Committee (CEC) to disqualify the Arab Joint List from participating in Israel's upcoming national parliamentary election, calling it motivated by racism.

Adalah filed the response on behalf of the Joint List ahead of tomorrow's Central Election Committee hearing on requests to disqualify candidates and political parties from the 17 September 2019 national election.

Tomorrow's hearing will be held at 15:30 at the Knesset.
