The bill would allow observers to bring cameras to polling stations but not into voting booths on Election Day.No opposition MK's voted. The Knesset's legal advisor had earlier said that the vote would need 61 votes to pass.

Justice Minister and Likud MK said that the legal advisor's ruling was wrong.
