Yisrael Beytenu announced Tuesday that it will submit a request to the Central Election Committee calling for the Balad faction to be forbidden from running in the upcoming Knesset elections.
MK David Rotem will submit the request on behalf of the party on the grounds that Balad supports terror and acts against the existence of Israel as a Jewish, democratic state.
