Shas urges election committee to allow extremist Otzma Yehudit to run

A representative of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party to the Central Elections Committee has drafted a letter urging the body not to accept a request by the Meretz party to disqualify the Otzma Yehudit faction from running in April.

Any decision by the Central Elections Committee to block Otzma Yehudit from running would then come before the Supreme Court, which in the last election cycle overruled bans on an Arab lawmaker and a far-right right activist now in Otzma Yehudit from participating in the elections.
