Knesset bill to create incentive for parties to hold primaries

Parties that hold primaries will receive more government funding before elections if the Ministerial Committee for Legislation approves a bill to that effect on Sunday.

The bill was proposed by three MKs from parties that hold primaries in which all of their members can participate – MK Omer Bar-Lev of Labor (Zionist Union), MK David Bitan of Likud and MK Nissan Slomiansky of Bayit Yehudi – who say they want to encourage other parties to be more democratic.
