The High Court rejects a petition calling to criminally investigate the Likud party over improper behavior.

The petition was filed by the Movement for Quality Government, which called for an investigation into Likud for granting a reserved spot on its list to former Yamina MK Idit Silman.

The group charges that Likud promised her a reserved spot in exchange for her working to bring down the outgoing government, something that is illegal.

Last month Meretz asked the Central Elections Committee to disqualify Silman from running, on similar grounds, but the request was rejected. Meretz vowed to appeal.

Russia plans to confer with residents in two Moscow-annexed regions in Ukraine while determining the exact borders of the areas to be integrated into Russia, the Kremlin says.

“We are going to continue to consult the populations of these regions,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov says, referring to the southern Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions that are partially controlled by the Ukrainian military. “No doubt, any configuration will depend only on the will of the people who live in a particular territory,” he says.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accuses arch-foes the United States and Israel of fomenting unrest in the Islamic Republic following the death of Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini.

“I say clearly that these riots and the insecurity were engineered by America and the occupying, false Zionist regime, as well as their paid agents, with the help of some traitorous Iranians abroad,” he says in his first public comment on the unrest sparked by Amini’s death.
