Representatives of MK and Labor leadership candidate Shelly Yacimovich complained that polls at several Kibbutzim and large cities were prevented from opening on time Wednesday morning due to the delayed arrival of rival candidate Amir Peretz's ballot slips.

Yacimovich's representatives asked the elections committee to order the polling stations opened as the delay was clearly a Peretz tactic due to the fact that Yacimovich has a majority in those stations.

The elections committee ordered the polling stations open at 10:30 a.m., 30 minutes later than their scheduled opening time.
