The Executive, led by right-wing political leader Naftali Bennett, postponed the vote for Monday due to its impossibility of reaching a majority at the Knesset (Parliament), made up of 120 legislators.

Press media emphasize that the postponement aims to try to convince the four deputies of the Arab-Israeli Ra’am party, one of whose legislators described the initiative as racist and anti-democratic.

Family reunification is allowed for Israeli citizens, however, it is prohibited for Arabs, Labor legislator Ibtisam Mara’ana denounced some few days ago.

The alliance has support of just 61 seats, so it is key for Bennett to add up each vote in favor of the regulation, approved for the first time in 2003 and extended since then every six months.
