The far-right Zehut Party, led by former MK Moshe Feiglin, will be holding a public Internet primary to choose its list for the Knesset on Tuesday, January 29.

"No more dirty political deals," Feiglin said. "We are putting the power in the hands of the Israeli public for the first time. I am proud of Zehut for setting the standard for political transparency, integrity and true democracy."

The vote will be conducted through an online encrypted system that allows any Israeli citizen above the age of 17 to vote using their ID.

Every citizen who signs up for the Zehut primaries vote will be "awarded" six points to distribute among the candidates for the Zehut Knesset list. The voters can allocate the points as they see fit, for example, giving each point to a different candidate or investing all their points in one.


The results for the Zehut primaries will be published the same day, at 9:00 p.m. Israel time.

The encrypted online vote can be accessed here:  https://app.evote.pro/reg/26/en/100
