Bishara announces plans for Knesset resignation

Balad Chairman Azmi Bishara announced Thursday evening that he planned to resign from his Knesset post following what he branded "persecution" against him. "Is it possible that a parliament member is subjected to such persecution," he asked during an interview with Nazareth based Hadit-a-nas. Bishara said that he had exhausted his parliamentary skills and that is what prompted his decision. "I did what I could with these skills. Eleven years is enough for me," added the MK.
