Bnei Akiva emissaries ask for right to vote

The international religious Zionist organization World Bnei Akiva wrote Central Elections Committee head Judge Salim Jubran Wednesday asking to grant its emissaries the right to vote in the March 17 election.

Under the 2013 election, votes could be submitted abroad at embassies and consulates only by ambassadors, consuls and Foreign Ministry staff and regular employees of the Jewish Agency, World Zionist Organization, and Jewish National Fund. The outgoing Knesset amended the law to also enable absentee voting by Agency emissaries who are employed locally by Hillels, schools, and Jewish Federations.
