A record 36 political parties — 24 of them new — will compete for seats in the 120-member Knesset on June 30. The Central Elections Committee closed registration last month and many of the factions filed their slates only minutes before the deadline. Each party standing for election was required to pay a 20,000 Shekel fee.
