The United Arab List party (Ra’am) has agreed to resume its full membership in the coalition government, Channel 12 reported Sunday night. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and UAL party chairman Mansour Abbas met Sunday in the Prime Minister’s Office in their first meeting since the UAL’s governing council instructed the party to suspend cooperation with the government.

According to the report, Bennett and Abbas reached a compromise under which UAL will end its self-imposed suspension from the government, restoring the 60-60 balance in the Knesset. As part of the deal, Prime Minister Bennett reportedly agreed to some of Abbas’ demands. The Prime Minister’s Office confirmed that the meeting took place Sunday, but refused to provide details.
