Central Elections Committee chairman Uzi Vogelman forbids Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai from using his mayoral Facebook account for election campaign purposes promoting Huldai’s new The Israelis party in the upcoming elections.

Vogelman, who is also a Supreme Court judge, says Huldai has broken the law by using state infrastructure to promote his party and fines his party NIS 5,000 ($1,528) and the Tel Aviv Municipality NIS 2,000 ($611).
