Hadash's council is set to approve a proposal to reserve fourth place on the party's Knesset list for MK Hashem Mahmid and sixth place for former MK Mohammed Kanan, after a night-long meeting between the party and the candidates to finalize the placement. Talks between Mahmid and Kanan have been ongoing for several days. Mahmid received 20,000 in his hometown of Umm al-Fahm in the last elections, less than the threshold for a Knesset seat. Fourth place for Mahmid and fifth place for another Umm al-Fahm resident, Afo Agrabiya, will considerably strengthen Hadash's showing in the area of the Triangle.
