High Court revokes ban on Arab parties from national elections
The High Court of Justice on Wednesday revoked a government decision to exclude Israeli-Arab parties from contenting in the national elections next month.

The court issued its decision in response to a petition submitted by Arab politicians against the ban. A spokesman for the Courts Administration said judges overturned the ban in an unanimous vote Wednesday.
