      Green Leaf Party Files Complaint Against Yechimovich


      The Green Leaf party filed a complaint, Monday morning, against Chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich of the Labor Party, claiming their party's ballot initials stood out in a list of parties Yechimovich said not vote for as part of a Facebook posting, Sunday evening. Yechimovich based her call on the fact that the parties in question were not likely to get enough votes to exceed the number needed to qualify for representation.

      Green Leaf Chairman Yaron Lehrmann said it wasn't the first time Yechimovich had done something like that, noting that the previous attack came after Professor Omer Moav presented th party's economic plan. He added that his party would qualify for representative, based on Labor's numbers, and said, "I urge all voters not to vote for the major and anachronistic parties, which only hurt our freedom over the years."
