Raam-Taal leaders Ibrahim Sarsour and Ahmed Tibi complained on Thursday that Arabs are not properly integrated into society and they hope that President Shimon Peres would use his influence to change this.

In a meeting with Peres, Tibi said elections are an important aspect of democracy but so is the integration of minorities."Minorities can be part of the coalition or the opposition, but neither of them wanted to include us," Tibi said.

He said it was problematic that there was only one candidate for prime minister and that Raam-Taal would not recommend anyone to be tasked with forming a coalition, even though its members could think of more suitable people than Binyamin Netanyahu.
