      Ma'ariv and Yediot Acharonot Cleared to Continue Polls

      Chairman Eliakum Rubinstein of the Central Elections Committee rejected, Thursday, an application by Director-General Yizhar Be'eri of Keshev, the Center for Protecting Democracy in Israel, to issue an injunction against the Ma'ariv and Yediot Acharonot dialies to prevent them from publishing public opinion polls until the end of the Knesset election campaign, scheduled for January.

      Be'eri claimed that the surveys published on December 14 ran counter to the law.
