All ballot boxes from diplomatic missions worldwide now in Israel

All ballot boxes from Israel’s diplomatic missions around the world have made it back to Israel, the Foreign Ministry announces, a day before the general public votes in the Knesset election.

“Today we successfully completed a complex logistical task, mainly due to the coronavirus crisis, and transferred all the votes of Israeli envoys to the Central Elections Committee (CEC),” Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi says in a statement, thanking the staff.

The statement says Ashkenazi has spoken with the CEC chairman, Supreme Court Justice Uzi Vogelman, and updated him on the development.
