Moving on up – the Green Movement-Meimad passing the threshold to the next Knesset!

Every vote counts!

Increasingly promising signs that the Green Movement-Meimad will pass the threshold and then some in the elections.  Mock elections held at Tel Aviv and Hebrew University had the Green Movement-Meimad easily passing the threshold.  (The threshold is the minimum amount of votes needed to assure a seat in the next parliament.)  At Hebrew University, more than 1000 students voted and the Green Movement-Meimad took third place, gaining 16 mandates.  At Tel Aviv University, with more than 2500 students voting, we took 4 mandates.  But the best mock election results come in from Tchernokovski High School in Netanya, whose students – after hearing representatives of each of the parties speak – gave 21% of the vote to the Green Movement-Meimad.  This was, according to press coverage, the big surprise of the school election.  Green Movement-Meimad activists continue campaigning throughout the country to make sure this becomes the big surprise of the national election!
