“The Daily Survey: Should Haredi women run in the elections?
Local elections are just around the corner . Party lists are being built and names are being thrown in the air. In addition to the fateful question of the next mayor, the candidates for a place on the city council, including Haredi female contenders , are presented one by one.
Is it proper? What do you think?”
0202 Editor’s Notes:
 Municipal election across Israel are scheduled for the 30th October 2018.
 Traditionally, women in Haredi society do not run for public office or hold any official leadership position. Recently, there has been a growing, albeit still small, number of Haredim who wish to change this practice and allow women to run for political positions.
