Hadash

The Democratic Front for Peace and Equality (also know as 'Hadash' or 'Jabha') is an Arab-Jewish communist party, currently led by Ayman Odeh.

Hadash's antecedents were the Maki and Rakah communist parties, which were historically the political home of most Palestinian voters in Israel during the early years of the state. Hadash's platform focuses on promoting social justice issues, building a shared society between Jews and Arabs, and ending the occupation to achieve a two-state solution (it was one of the first parties in Israel to promote the idea). Hadash was part of the Joint List from 2015 to 2019 (with Odeh as its head), and is now running together with Ta'al in the 2019 elections as the joint Hadash-Ta’al list.
