More than a few arguments and disputes preceded the primaries, but today the voters will have the opportunity to select the party lineup with the exception of slots guaranteed for Tekuma faction candidates and the 10th slot. A petition was filed with the courts by attorney Eyal Bar to prevent the election from taking place but the court rejected it.

Each voter will have to place two slips of paper into an envelope, one for the party leader and then the lineup. Each voter selects seven names of which 3 receive two points and 4 receive one point. Members of the party’s central committee also get a third slip of paper which determines who gets the 10th slot.

Polls close at 10PM around the country.
