      Habayit Hayehudi: Youth-Candidate Spot Up in the Air

      Judge Avi Zamir of the Tel Aviv District Court came up with a compromise, Monday, under which, the reserved spot for a young candidate on the Habayit Hayehudi Knesset list will be determined after the results are known in the race for the spot reserved for women. The compromise struck down a decision by a three-judge party court that even if Ayelet Shaked wins the women's spot, also qualifying as a young candidate, another position will be reserved for a non-woman young candidate.

      Under the compromise, if Shaked defeats the other two candidates for the spot reserved for women, the matter will be brought before a five-judge party court.
