Law of Political Parties - Amendment No. 12

Political Participation
Regulates the procedures for the establishment of political parties in Israel. Article 5(1) sets forth various [ideological] limitations on the registration rights of political parties similar to Section 7(A)(1) of The Basic Law: The Knesset, including the prohibition on registration of parties which, by their platforms, “deny the existence of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state”. The amendment to Article 5 adds the provision that a political party that wishes to run for the Knesset elections will not be registered if its goals or actions, directly or indirectly, “support armed struggle of an enemy state or of a terror organization, against the State of Israel.”
