Description
   This flyer is the slate for the Yud list - a list of 14 candidates for a party entitled Hitachdut HaZionim Hakelalim Hademocratim. The name of the party may be loosely translated as the Unity Party of General Democratic Zionists.

Israel's Parliament, the Knesset has 120 seats. The members of Knesset are not chosen individually. Instead votes are cast for a party, and each party is allotted a certain number of seats according to the percentage of votes that party received in an election. If a party were to receive votes equivalent to 5 seats, the first 5 names on its slate would become members of Knesset.
