The Egged bus company on Sunday said it will allow Kadima to post campaign posters containing the words "yeshiva students" on its buses after initially refusing to do so. Meanwhile, the Central Elections Committee asked the Dan bus company for an answer on the matter.

 

The Kadima party revealed on Thursday that the Egged and Dan bus companies have refused to advertise their election campaign signs featuring slogans for equal share of the burden.

The signs state that IDF soldiers receive only NIS 350 (about $95) a month while yeshiva students receive NIS 3,400 (about $905) and "pay soldiers like yeshiva students." Egged and Dan reportedly refused to post the signs for fear of offending the haredi public.

 

After examining the matter Egged decided to allow the signs to be posted on its buses. Spokesman Ron Ratner said, "In view of the fact that the Central Elections Committee vetted Kadima's message we have decided to post it on all buses starting today."

 

Dan spokesman Eitan Fixman said, "We have not changed our stance even after consultations with our legal advisors.

 

"We call on all parties to use our platform to advertise their campaigns as long as they confine themselves to positive and not hurtful messages."
