The High Court rejects a petition calling to criminally investigate the Likud party over improper behavior.

The petition was filed by the Movement for Quality Government, which called for an investigation into Likud for granting a reserved spot on its list to former Yamina MK Idit Silman.

The group charges that Likud promised her a reserved spot in exchange for her working to bring down the outgoing government, something that is illegal.

Last month Meretz asked the Central Elections Committee to disqualify Silman from running, on similar grounds, but the request was rejected. Meretz vowed to appeal.
