Elections day ran smoothly across the country on Tuesday, Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Dudi Cohen said, adding that police preparations and large mobilization of officers had helped prevent disruptions to the balloting. Cohen visited Central Elections Committee Chairman Judge Eliezer Rivlin at his bureau in Jerusalem and briefed him on the day's proceedings. Rivlin praised the police's conduct and emphasized the police's handling of tensions at Umm el-Fahm, where police banned far-right activist Baruch Marzel from entering the town. "The police's conduct was wise and effective," Rivlin said, adding that the police's decisions had prevented flash points from spiraling out of control.
