Barkat Camp: Deri and Lieberman Counting On a Low Turnout
Nir Barkat's election camp says it is concerned by the low voter turnout in Jerusalem which stood at a meager 9% this morning.
Barkat's team said that only 18% of eligible voters had cast their ballots by mid afternoon, and said the figures were lower than had been expected.
Maariv/NRG said the turnout was lower than the 2008 elections when 21% of citizens had voted by 4 pm.
