The Central Elections Committee releases its schedule, 121 days ahead of the November 1 election date for the 25th Knesset.

Among the notable dates, parties must submit their finalized candidate lists by September 15, 47 days before Israelis head to the polls.

Fourteen days before the election, on October 18, parties will be officially allocated television and radio airtime for media blitzes.

As Israel’s paper ballots are hand-counted, final results will be expected within 8 days, by November 9.
