Due to Clerical Error, Arab Town Votes for Far-right Jewish Party

A recount of the polling data in Jisr al-Zarqa, which attracted the attention of the elections committee, revealed a clerical error was responsible for the surprising support of Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben Ari's party.

Surprising support for Otzma Leyisrael, a party on the far right, in the Israeli Arab town of Jisr al-Zarqa was in fact a clerical error, the central election committee said on Sunday.
