Israel’s Central Election Commission struck a far-right candidate from the Likud Party list. The commission ruled against Moshe Feiglin, citing a law that bans candidates from serving in the Knesset for seven years if they have served at least three months in jail for a crime involving moral turpitude. Feiglin served a six-month jail sentence after he was convicted in 1997 of sedition.
