0404 News reported that the Likud responsed harshly to the Central Election Committee chairman Supreme Court Justice Neil Handel's decision to allow the continued operation of the Darkenu movement, known for its support of left-wing causes.

According to the Likud, this is yet another attempt on the part of the Left to steal the elections.

The Likud released a statement criticizing "the election committee chairman's decision to allow the continued operation of Darkenu, a direct continuation of V15 (an Obama-sponsored organization indicted for receiving $349,000 of State Department money to topple Netanyahu in the 2015 Knesset election) which provides assistance to the establishment of a Gantz/Tibi left-wing government that jeopardizes Israel's security."

The statement continued: "The Left is again attempting to steal the elections by illegitimate means. Our response will come by way of the voting booths - only a Likud vote stands in the way of a left-wing government contingent on support from Ahmad Tibi."
