Zionist Union MK Shelly Yacimovitch appealed to the Tel Aviv District Court Tuesday asking to cancel last Tuesday's election for head of the Histadrut Labor Federation.

The lawsuit lists a series of incidents of wrongdoings as well as testimonies from people who said they did not vote but whose votes were cast and counted nonetheless.

The 26-page document lists the incidents and calls into question how the election was run. Yacimovich lost the election for chairmanship of Israel's biggest union to incumbent Avi Nissenkorn by a vote of 62.42%-37.58% (in Nissenkorn's favor).
