Netanyahu requested an emergency meeting with Judge Chaim Meltzer on Shabbos. A Likud spokesperson said that the meeting was called because of the results of an investigation carried out by Kalman Livskid last week that found that the previous election results were tampered with. According to the report, police only investigated two out of 82 problematic ballot boxes where supervisors of the boxes reported that people voted with fake identification. The result of these 80 problematic boxes caused the Yamin Hachadash party to not pass the electoral threshold, thereby preventing Netanyahu from forming a government in the previous election. Netanyahu asked for the emergency meeting in order to create a plan to prevent these elections from being tampered with.
