Municipal Elections in Migdal Gad Voided; Secret Ballot Principle Found Violated

District Judge Benjamin Cohen, sitting here, has voided the Migdal Gad municipal elections on the ground that the principle of the secret ballot was violated.

Residents of Migdal Gad who challenged the election of the town’s mayor, charged that ballots were placed in transparent envelopes. They also asserted that the mayor could not serve because he was not a bonafide resident prior to his election.
