Netanyahu: I do not think that the evidentiary phase of the trial will begin before the election (Edit: Amit Simcha)

Yesterday (Thursday), Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted a picture on his Facebook page in which he is photographed with IDF soldiers, in violation of the Propaganda Law, which prohibits the use of the IDF and its soldiers in the context of election propaganda.

After the movement turned to the quality of government, the picture was removed from the post.



A letter sent by the movement to Netanyahu and the Likud states that "the content of the publication, including the picture showing the prime minister with IDF soldiers in uniform, while their faces are visible to all, amounts to the identification of the prime minister, who serves as Likud party, Contrary to the Election Law (Propaganda Methods) and the decisions of the Central Election Commission from the last election campaigns that ordered Netanyahu and the Likud to stop using IDF soldiers in the campaign.

This is not the first time in the current election campaign that politicians are acting in violation of election and propaganda laws.

Last week it was reported that Blue and White Chairman and Defense Minister Bnei Gantz held political talks with activists from his office in the Ministry of Defense, using the ministry's equipment and devices, in violation of the Electoral Law prohibiting the use of government assets for election propaganda. In



blue and white, there have been at least three zoom calls with hundreds of activists in the past month, under the slogan "With you in the living room", with the participation of alternate ministers among the party ministers. In talks held on Friday afternoon, Ganz appeared from his office Under the name "Mashhabat" - which belongs to the Ministry of Defense

The Election Law (Propaganda Methods) prohibits the use in connection with election propaganda of funds or tangible or intangible assets of government ministries and other government bodies.

The ban is intended to separate public funds, which fund government ministers, and party funding funds that fund election campaigns, as well as to keep public service clean from politicization.



In addition, the use of government resources for election propaganda purposes violates the principle of equality applicable to candidates in elections, as not all parties enjoy access to them.



At the same time, before all elections and also in the run-up to the elections to the 24th Knesset, clear instructions from the Attorney General are circulated to all government ministers, prohibiting party activity in ministerial offices.

Thus, the ombudsman allows political activity out of bureaucracies and deputy ministers, only when it comes to limited and limited activity.
