Israelis abroad want election say

JUST 12 months ago, Harel Meshulam was dodging falling Palestinian rockets at a military base on the Gaza-Israel border. Now he is in Australia to work and travel but will be denied the right to vote when his compatriots in Israel head to the polls for today's general election.
Israel's electoral law prohibits citizens from voting if they are out of the country on election day.
