The Otzma Yehudit party will not be prevented from running in the September 17 election, after a petition aimed at disqualifying the far Right party did not win a majority of the votes in the Central Elections Committee.

The vote in the 33-member committee was 15 in favor and 15 against, along traditional Left-Right party lines. Representatives of the Labor Party were not present for the vote.
Votes will be held later in the day on disqualifying Otzma candidates Itamar Ben-Gvir, Baruch Marzel and Bentzi Gopstein, the Joint List and Blue and White.
