Beinish calls urgent meeting on ad cancellation

Central elections committee head Judge Dorit Beinish called an urgent meeting of the committee Tuesday night to discuss Channel 2's decision to cancel the broadcast of Tuesday's election ads. Channel 2 reportedly decided to use the air time for a special update on events following the siege of the Jericho Prison. A committee source told Army Radio that Channel 2 may have acted illegally by deciding unilaterally not to air the election promos.
