MK Danny Danon (Likud) plans to petition the Central Elections Committee to prevent MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) from running with her party for the 19th Knesset, he announced on Sunday.

According to Danon, Zoabi has used her parliamentary immunity to support terrorism and attacks on IDF soldiers.

"There is no place for such an MK in the Knesset – she belongs in jail," Danon said.

The Likud MK sent a letter of inquiry to Central Elections Committee  chairwoman Judge Miriam Naor, ahead of an official petition, which he plans to send after new committee members are chosen.

He cited Zoabi's participation in the June 2010 Gaza flotilla, as said she called for a third intifada and continued terror against Israelis.
