Likud files court motion against AG, Labor, Meretz and V15

February 15, 2015 22:26

The court spokesman announced late Sunday night that the Likud party has made a motion against the Attorney-General, the Zionist Union party, Meretz, V15 and the "One Voice" movement.

Likud's motion took place in the context of a legal claim it had already filed against all of the above parties other than Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein.

Weinstein was added for the purposes of the motion because last Wednesday he told the Central Elections Commission that it does not have the authority to grant the Likud party's request to block advertising by the group known as V15.

More specifically, the motion also attempts to block data mining on potential voters by V15.

Since Weinstein is the highest executive branch legal authority, the Likud's only recourse to try to overturn him was to take the highly unusual maneuver of filing the motion against him also and going to the Jerusalem District Court.

A hearing is scheduled on the issue for Wednesday.
