Beit Shemesh Mayoral Candidate Promises Democracy at Conference


Political and media consultant Akiva Weingarten also spoke at the conference, where he described the special preparations to prevent election fraud for the Tuesday's elections.

Weingarten explained that there are two primary types of fraud; illegal transfer of identity cards by people not voting to others who vote in their place, and a number of methods to stuff ballot boxes or cancel the votes of supporters of a particular candidate. During the last elections, these methods allegedly led to hundreds of votes being counted toward Cohen’s opponent, Moshe Abutbul.
