Israeli voters complain of `immodest` woman election official

Jerusalem: An "inappropriately" dressed Israeli woman election commission official on Tuesday offended members of an ultra-orthodox Jewish community here, triggering a commotion at a polling station.

Voters complained that the supervisor at the poll station in Orthodox Bayit VeGan neighbourhood was "immodestly dressed in pants instead of a skirt", which disrupted the process as local residents were unwilling to approach her, The Times of Israel reported.

The Central Elections Committee said it has received a complaint that the poll official was "inappropriately" dressed. The Committee said it would send a representative to review the matter.
"There is a haredi (ultra-orthodox) community here and they saw a woman wearing pants. That was the problem," said one of the polling station representatives.

Israel is holding elections for the 120-member Knesset (parliament).
