The New Right Party Is Out – It’s Final

A week after the election for 21st Knesset, the Central Election Committee informed New Right Chairman Naftali Bennet the “there are no invalidated ballots”.

The notification of the committee followed days of intensive operation, hope and tefilla among party leaders and activists, but it is now final, that the New Right party headed by Naftali Bennet and Ayelet Shaked will not be represented in the 21st Knesset.

Bennet called for rechecking dozens of polling stations around the country, and the election committee complied, with Bennet and Shaked hopeful that approximately 1400 votes they needed to pass the electoral threshold would be found. However, this did not occur, and the party has officially been informed it is not in Knesset.

The New Right party explains its findings to justify demanding a probe. In their words, the probe proves the justness of their claims that in 8 percent of the sample polling stations they passed for the committee’s examination, gaps were found between the number of votes recorded on the central computer and the actual number of votes, according to them, by another 10% of the polling stations in question, and, until this moment we have not received a copy of the ballot box, so we have no possibility of carrying out the examination.”

In short, party leaders are not bowing out graciously but are accusing the Central Election Committee of fraudulent elections.
