Right-wing Likud-Beytenu MK Danny Danon told The Jerusalem Post that if the Supreme Court allows Balad MK Haneen Zoabi to run in the upcoming election, he is prepared with a 'Plan B': amending the law to prevent future runs.
The court was set to hear the petition about Zoabi on Thursday with a panel of nine justices, presided over by Supreme Court President Asher D. Grunis, and is likely to strike down the Central Elections Committee decision a week earlier to ban her run.
The Committee passed the ban on grounds of supporting terrorism and rejecting Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.
Danon, who led the move to disqualify Zoabi, told the Post that he believes he can win in court, despite the fact that it has never disqualified an Arab MK before.
