The Central Elections Committee will review 12 requests to bar parties and individuals from running for the 19th Knesset on Wednesday, despite Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein's recommendation not to disqualify anyone.

There are six petitions against the Balad party, submitted by MKs David Rotem (Yisrael Beytenu), Danny Danon (Likud), Ofir Akunis (Likud), and Strong Israel leaders MKs Michael Ben-Ari and Arieh Eldad, as well as The Legal Forum for the Land of Israel and an individual named Itai Forman.

Akunis also submitted signatures from 13 Central Election Committee members to call a vote to disqualify MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad).

In addition, Strong Israel petitioned to disqualify UAL-Ta'al.
