Small Parties running for the 22nd Knesset 

According to the Parties Law (1992), a party is defined as a group of people who have come together in order to pursue legally political or social goals and to bring about their representation in the Knesset. Since the passing of this law, there are clear regulations regarding the establishment of parties, their registration with the Parties Registrar, their institutions, assets, activities, finances, etc... The law also determines the limitations on a party's potential registration. The following prohibitions are included in these limitations:

  • Any rejection (in the party's goals or activities) of the existence of the State of Israel as a Jewish, democratic state.

  • Any incitement to racism.

  • Any support of the armed struggle of an enemy state or terrorist organization against the State of Israel

  • Any hint of a cover for illegal activity.
