Labor leadership candidate MK Shelly Yacimovich and her camp filed a complaint to the Central Election Commission over disturbances at the polls in Mitzpe Ramon.

According to a statement, the Yacimovich camp's attorney general said that Regional Council Mayor Flora Sasson, who happens to be Yacimovich-competitor MK Amir Peretz's sister, was standing at the entrance to the poll permitting some to enter and denying access to others.

The complaint also said that Peretz staff was sitting in the polling area - which is forbidden by law - and threatening Yacimovich staff.
