The State will not defend a ban on Balad MK Haneen Zoabi, the State Attorney's Office declared Wednesday, indicating that the High Court of Justice will strike down the ban and allow her to run in upcoming elections.

"It is the opinion of the attorney-general that there is no room for the esteemed High Court of Justice to authorize the Central Elections Committee decision to bar MK Zoabi from running in the 19th Knesset," the attorney-general stated.
