The original vote in October, which the Supreme Court canceled because of fraud, gave a narrow victory to Salam. Then, Salam received 16,331 votes to Jaraisy’s 16,308.

Ghada Zoabi, founder and CEO of the Israeli-Arab news portal Bokra, told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday evening that the Balad party, of former mayoral candidate MK Haneen Zoabi, as well as the Islamic Movement in Israel, had thrown their support behind Salam.
