During the next Knesset the Joint List will work to get Israeli Arabs recognized as a national minority and promote equality and social justice for all the country’s citizens, the slate’s candidates told a Tel Aviv press conference yesterday.

The event marked the launch of the Joint List's Hebrew-language campaign.

The aim of the press conference was to present the list as an option for all Israeli voters.

During the press conference, Joint List members stressed that the united ticket was not a threat to the Jewish public, and that anyone who believes in democracy, civic equality, and true social justice could vote for the list.
