Israel’s Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein filed documents with the Jerusalem District Court earlier today challenging the results of the Beit Shemesh mayoral elections and asking it to call new elections, Yeshiva World reported.
Losing mayoral candidate Eli Cohen reportedly also filed a similar petition with the court today.
There is widespread evidence of massive haredi voter fraud and tampering carried out on the behalf of Beit Shemesh’s incumbent haredi mayor, Rabbi Moshe Abutbol of the Sefardi haredi Shas political party, who beat Cohen by fewer than 1,000 votes.
Police have so far made at least 8 arrests of haredim – including the arrests of a close confidant of Abutbol – who allegedly were caught redhanded running the election fraud.
