The growing internal differences within the United Arab List-Ta'al Party may force MK Talab El-Sana to leave the party, Ynet learned Sunday.

 

The party has seen several newcomers join its ranks ahead of the nearing elections, and El-Sana may slip down to number five on the party's Knesset roster.

It in unclear at this time whether the party will win more than four seats in the elections. A top source in the Islamic Movement told Ynet that the MK's position "is unstable."

 

Party sources said that unless a two-year rotation agreement is reached for the fourth place on the list, El-Sana may have no choice but to leave the party.

"Some in the party have asked him not to run for the Knesset and made him other offers," a party insider said, adding "But no decisions have been made."

 

Another option is for the United Arab List-Ta'al to join forces with Balad, but according to party sources, that idea is only in its initial stages.

 

Speaking with Ynet, El-Sana denied the reports, saying he was not leaving the party.

 

Another party member told Ynet that there was no change in the party's roster and that any report suggesting otherwise was "nothing but baseless rumors."
