MK Haneen Zoabi (Joint List) said Saturday that she would not be running in Israel's upcoming election.

Zoabi told the central committee of her faction, Balad, that after 10 years in office, “the time has come to change [my] place, but not the way, to strengthen the model of Balad, for the sake of a stronger Palestinian generation, a more stubborn struggle, and believe that justice will be done,” she said.
