      Singer's Appearance at Likud Campaign Launch Illegal

      Chairman Eliyakim Rubinstein of the Central Elections Committee ruled, Friday, that popular singer Sarit Hadad's appearance at the recent launch of the Likud-Beyteinu campaign for Knesset was a conscious violation of Article 8 of the law governing campaign publicity.

      The Supreme Court justice said he was forwarding his ruling to the Attorney General's Office so that he could address the case under Article 17 of the law. It is also being forwarded to the state comptroller.
