‘[Arab] voter turnout dropped to under 50 per cent the lowest seen in recent years!’ the company claims
'An Israeli PR company, led by a settler, has claimed it helped Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party plant 1,200 hidden cameras across Arab polling stations – boasting it drove down voter turnout in the election to a record low.
The discovery of the hidden cameras sparked uproar and multiple complaints on the day of the election, and even calls for the party to be disqualified.
The police confiscated dozens of the devices, while the Central Elections Committee said no one could be filmed entering a polling station or voting.
Mr Netanyahu later defended the move, saying the cameras were intended to ensure voting was “valid”.
PR company Kaizler Inbar published a photo on Facebook of its senior staff with Mr Netanyahu and his wife Sara on Wednesday, shortly after the vote.
“Shush, don’t tell anyone. It was us,” the post read, claiming they had stopped “thousands of forgeries” at Arab polling stations.
“Thanks to the fact that our observers were placed in every [Arab] polling station, the percentage of voter turnout dropped to under 50 per cent the lowest seen in recent years!” They added.
The company went on to say they had a “deep and close partnership with the best people in Likud”.'
