Counting of the 250,000 votes from soldiers, hospitals, embassies and prisoners are expected to only be completed on Thursday.

As a result, some of the party numbers may still change.

There are predictions that Likud may still go up to 33, HaBayit HaYehudi to 12, while Yesh Atid may drop to 18 and the Arab seats by one or two seats.

Wait and see.

  1. I hope the IDF gives an extra seat or 2 to the right. The Right having 62-63 seats gives them some extra flexibility vs. 60 in coalition building. Unlike Otzma these seats would actually contribute to a governing coalition. Remember, NU refused to put its 4 seats in the government so Bibi had 61 right-wing votes not 65 supplemented by Labor, or Independence or Kadima. Having 62 or 63 seats is 1 or 2 more than Bibi had last time. This election is not a huge defeat for the right. I have to temper my wishful thinking; I believed the polls that indicated the right would win 70 seats. I'll believe it when I see it but I just think that adding 250,000 votes into the pot will change some seats at the margin.
