Group seeks to throw book at top government official for ballot box pic

A good governance group is asking the state civil service commission to file an official complaint against Cabinet Secretary Tzachi Braverman after he posted a picture of himself voting for Likud on Instagram, in what it says could be considered illegal electioneering.

“Braverman’s behavior is a clear-cut violation of the law and undermines the good name of the civil service and its work,” Hatnua L’Tohar Hamidot says in a tweet.

The group is also asking that Braverman be suspended until after an investigation is completed.

There is no immediate response from Braverman, whose position makes him a top aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the head of Likud.
