In Shiloh the elections are for voluntary posts which demand a lot of time, efforts and nothing much but public complaints in exchange. The party primaries are to give people the chance to be Knesset Members, a position with an above average salary, granted for some people it's a reduction, but for others it's more money than they had previously earned, and another aspect of the job is the chance to give other people jobs on the MK staff. And that's besides the actual status and chance to try to legislate change from the inside, rather than ranting from outside the government.
A lot has been in the news about both the Likud and Bayit Yehudi having impossible to be accurate results:
I wouldn't dare to guess whether something crooked really happened in either party's primaries. Since it's all done by "hand," the human factor means that it's easy to cheat and also easy to make an honest mistake.
If there was cheating, let it be proven and have the guilty, tried and punished.
And I also wish that political and elected government leaders be punished for saddling us with policies they campaigned not to rule by!
