Election Committee fines Shas for giving voters protective charms, blessings
The Central Elections Committee has fined the Shas party NIS 7,500 ($2,150) for distributing charms, blessings and booklets to voters at polling stations.
The ultra-Orthodox party is said to have promised voters that the trinkets would protect them from coronavirus infection.
Labor-Gesher-Meretz had appealed to the CEC to fine Shas, saying the practice constituted election bribery.
