MK Lipman Calls for New Beit Shemesh Mayoral Elections


Member of Knesset Dov Lipman (Yesh Atid) called for new elections in the contested Beit Shemesh mayoral race. "We're not just talking about evidence of fraud," he told Arutz Sheva news on Wednesday, "there is a feeling that this was not democratic. There is a difference of less than a thousand votes in favor of [incumbent] Moshe Abutbul and [challenger] Eli Cohen," he said. MK Lipman is a resident of Beit Shemesh.
