About three months ago, the Ministerial Committee for Legislation approved a bill that has been nicknamed the V15 Law. This bill is aimed at making it harder for Israeli and foreign organizations to influence the Knesset elections. Before the bill becomes a law, it is expected to be significantly altered in a way that will ensure the support of most of the MKs.

The bill is being proposed by MK Yoav Kish (Likud) and has received the widespread support of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

According to the draft, the law will apply to any organization that donates more than 100,000 NIS to a campaign. Once an organization is defined as active in the election, it is subjected to significant restrictions. In addition, the political parties will not be allowed to receive money from a person who has already donated to a different political party.   

One of the expected restrictions is that political parties cannot receive more than 11,000 NIS from a private individual. For political parties that are backed by a few private individuals, this is a major issue.
