can raise the money for ads in the
press, mass mailings and bill-
board space, find it impossible to
attract the kind of attention that
is required to win an election.
The very few new faces on the
1996 party lists got there by com-
peting for a seat set aside for a
special group or, less often, for a
particular region. Thus the Labor
Party, for example, allocated seats
nine, eighteen and thirty-seven
to women, seats seventeen and
thirty-six to Arabs and seats
twenty and forty to kibbutzniks.
Despite the largely predeter-
mined results, the candidates
campaigned very hard, so hard
that one of them (Tourism Min-
ister Uzi Baram) ended up in the
hospital and another (incumbent
Likud Knesset Member Ariel We-
instein) in the cemetery. Maybe

Women did poorly,
making it unlikely
that they would grow
beyond the current
9 percent of the
Knesset.

_

Mr. Weinstein would have had
a heart attack and died in other
circumstances, but the newspa-
pers headlined the report of his
death: 'The first victim of the pri-
maries."
Some candidates bolstered
their chances of being selected by
signing up new members for their
party, people who could be count-
ed upon to support them in the
primaries. Apparently some of the
recruits were ideologically flexi-
ble and joined two or three par-
ties instead of just one, which is
illegal. So some 50,000 such
names were removed, by court or-
der, from various party member-
ship rolls.
Women did poorly in the pri-
maries, making it unlikely that
their current percentage in the
Knesset (9 percent) will grow.
Particularly outraged were the
women in the National Religious
Party, who were certain that they
would be represented in the next
NRP Knesset delegation. But
when candidates were chosen by
the party's central committee, the
two female candidates were too
far down on the list to have no
chance of winning a Knesset seat.
When something similar hap-
pened on the eve of the Jerusalem
municipal elections in 1989,
women supporters of the Nation-
al Religious Party set up an in-
dependent list and won a seat on
the City Council in their own
right. However, it is too late for
them to do the same for the Knes-
set contest, and since they won't
vote for another party, they can
either support the NRP's male
chauvinists or stay home on elec-
tion day.
