Meretz MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi said she had yet to decide if she would vote to dissolve the coalition next week, according to an interview with Channel 12.

“I will vote according to my conscience, and we will see what will be,” she said.

Zoabi left the coalition Thursday over a perceived right-wing slant to the government, particularly in its handling of matters concerning Arabs.

“I’ve arrived at the point of no-return as far as I am no longer part of this coalition,” she said.

“Unfortunately, in the past month the government broke right – broke right politically,” she added, blasting what she called police brutality on Har HaBayis.

Zoabi singled out the Har HaBayis conflicts, Sheikh Jarrah, the expansion of settlements, house demolitions, the passing of the Citizenship Law and land confiscations in the Negev as influencing her decision.

This leaves the coalition with 59 seats out of 120, placing them in the minority.
