The Arab-dominated political party alliance in Israel said earlier that 10 percent of Israeli Arabs cast their ballot by 11.00 local time as opposed to only three percent who had voted by the same time in 2013.
“The right wing's rule is in danger. The Arabs are coming in droves to the polls,” Netanyahu declared, quoted by local i24news television channel.
Earlier, Joint List candidate Dr. Abdullah Abu Marouf told Sputnik the alliance of Israel's four Arab-dominated parties would support any political force that would put an end to Israel's long-standing occupation of Palestinian land.
The main rivals in the current election are the Likud party, headed by current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the opposition Zionist Union, led by Isaac Herzog.
According to the latest opinion polls, the prime minister's party has a good chance of losing the elections to the center-left Zionist Union, political alliance of the Israeli Labor Party and Hantuah, taking 22 seats versus the Union’s 26.
Alliance of Israel's four Arab-dominated parties is expected to take up to 13 seats in the 120-strong Knesset.
