Arab party returns to Israeli governing alliance after boycott

At the beginning of this month, the party froze its participation in the Executive for the attacks on the religious site, the third holiest for Muslims.

The Times of Israel newspaper revealed that Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and Mansour Abbas, leader of Raam, agreed during a meeting to have the organization rejoin forces with the coalition, led by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

The coalition recently lost its meager majority after the defection of the ultranationalist legislator Idit Silman, who added her vote to the opposition, led by the Likud party of former head of government Benjamin Netanyahu.

Three days ago, the Israel Hayom newspaper revealed that Bennett, Lapid and Defense Minister Beny Gantz canceled their trips abroad due to the government crisis.

According to the newspaper, the politicians will stay at home for the foreseeable future to try to keep the coalition, whose eight parties have great differences among them, united. They do not want to leave the country given the delicate situation, a high-ranking official commented, as quoted by the newspaper.

Bennett heads the far-right Yamina group, while Lapid heads the Future group and Gantz is at the helm of the Blue and White party.
