2/1/2009 4:22:31 AM Teachers Party stands down
The teachers party Change Education will not be standing for the elections. They failed to inform the Central Elections Committee and as a result the 7 million voting papers for this party were printed and will now have to be thrown away. The party had reserved the letters פח for the voting which ironically means garbage in Hebrew.
