November 11, 2012 19:40

Five Habayit Hayehudi primary candidates are suing the party's court and central election committee, according to legal documents obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post on Sunday.

The petitioners, MK Uri Orbach, Doron Danino, former MK Gila Finkelstein, Shuli Mualem and Beersheba Deputy Mayor Avi Wertzman, have asked the Tel Aviv District Court to repeal a Habayit Hayehudi court decision to keep the fifth spot saved for candidates under 40 if a woman who fits that criteria is elected in the fourth spot, which is saved for female candidates.

Habayit Hayehudi members will elect the party's list for the next Knesset in an open primary on Tuesday. There are 14 candidates running.
