Central Elections Committee urges media to fairly cover March vote

The head of the Central Elections Committee, Judge Uzi Fogelman, in a letter to media outlets urges them to offer balanced coverage of all the parties running the upcoming March elections.

“I urge you to give fair representation to all the lists running in the election and  their views, professionally and fairly. This will preserve the equality in the elections and the spirit of the law that anchors it,” he writes, while stressing that he is not intervening in the media coverage or suggesting how much air time each party should get.
