Lending support to Arab politicians who have suggested that the three main Arab parties for Knesset team up in January’s elections, a new poll suggests that the majority of voters think a united slate is a good idea.

According to a new poll conducted by Dialog in the Arab sector during the month of October, 65 percent of respondents said they would prefer that all the Arab parties run on one united ticket in January’s elections for the Knesset. The poll, which surveyed 500 respondents across the Arab sector – including Beduin and Druse – found that 55 percent would like this list to be chaired by Dr. Ahmed Tibi, the head of Ra’am-Ta’al, while none of the others were able to amass more than 10 percent.
