The head of the Arab nationalist Balad party on Friday accused Prime Minister Yair Lapid of orchestrating the split between his party and the other two members of the Joint List as the move threatened to upend the political status quo ahead of the upcoming elections. The accusation from Balad chairman Sami Abou Shahadeh came as analysts tried to figure out if the move would be more beneficial to opposition chief Benjamin Netanyahu or Lapid. Netanyahu will reportedly not seek the disqualification of Balad as he has in the past.
