Balad MK Haneen Zoabi said Thursday that the High Court of Justice would "have its say," on the Central Elections Committee decision to disqualify her from the upcoming election.

"I did not have high expectations that most of the members of the Elections Committee would follow the fundamental rules of democracy that they are bound by. This is a political committee in a Knesset that has a majority of right-wingers and racists," she said.

"There is no legitimate, legal basis to disqualify me, as was made clear by the attorney-general and previous High Court decisions on attempts to unseat me as a representative of the Arab public," she added.
