The Jewish Home party members were set to vote for the party’s Knesset slate Wednesday, even as a court challenge over voting procedures threatened to derail the primary election. Eyal Bar Lev and Daniel Bashari, party members, obtained a court injunction Tuesday to halt the vote, but on Wednesday morning the Lod District Court rejected their claims and allowed the vote to go ahead as planned.

Some 77,000 party members are eligible to vote on the party list, which has 37 candidates competing for realistic places in the 20th Knesset.
