Israel Prohibits Anonymous Online Political Content Ahead of April Election

40 days ahead of the general election in the country, Israel’s Central Elections Committee has issued a decree on Wednesday extending existing propaganda law, which prohibits anonymous political publications, to content posted online.

The decision, made by the committee’s chairman Hanan Melcer, came following a petition filed in December by social activists, to which the ruling Likud party was the only party to explicitly object.
