Israel Election Day Update

Posted on Monday, January 12, 2009

An editorial in today's influential Haaretz newspaper makes the case for postponing the upcoming February 10 elections by 60 days. The Basic Law on the Knesset guarantees that Election Day be a national public holiday in Israel.

But the editorial also reiterates past arguments (2008-11-16) that the granting of a public holiday on Election Day should be canceled.
