Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned his supporters that the Arab Joint List would win 15 seats in Tuesday’s parliamentary elections. reports citing Anadolu Agency.

According to the Israeli media, a Likud spokesperson published details from a meeting hosted by Netanyahu at his residence Tuesday warning the Arab list could warn more seats than expected in the polls.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu expects the Joint Arab List to win 15 Knesset seats," the spokesperson said.

Hadash-Taa’al alliance and United Arab List-Balad, which formed the Arab Joint List, had won 10 seats in total in previous polls.

The Arab Joint List group announced on Tuesday that voting rates had increased slightly in Arab localities relative to elections this April.

It added, however, that there was a big difference in the overall turnout compared to the 2015 ballot.

According to the Knesset (Israeli parliament) Central Elections Committee, voter turnout as of 5 p.m. stands at 44.3%, up 1.5% from April.
