The Central Election Committee ordered Bayit Yehudi on Friday to remove ads featuring party chairman Naftali Bennett alongside Likud-Beytenu head Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu with the slogan "supporting Netanyahu, voting Bennett," Army Radio reported.

On Thursday, the Likud-Beytenu petitioned the Elections Committee, calling the ads "manipulative and deceitful" and expressing concern they would mislead voters into thinking the two parties are running together, or have made an agreement to work together following the election.
