The Israel Hayom / i24NEWS survey, conducted by Ma’agar Mochot Institute under the direction of Prof. Yitzhak Katz, shows Likud with 26 seats, as it did last week in the same survey – and it’s down 4 from its current Knesset standing.
Blue and White cannot stop their decline: this week it gets 30 seats, down from 33 seats last week.
Labor rises to 9 seats, up from 6 last week.
Meretz, on the other hand, is down by 3 to 6 seats.
With the Arab factions, Hadash -Ta’al and Ra’am-Balad, which together receive 9 seats (5 and 4 respectively), the center-left bloc including the Arabs is only at 54 seats.
Even with Orly Levi-Abekasis’s Gesher, which crossed the vote threshold with 4 seats, would only pull Gantz’s bloc up to 58 seats, including 9 Arabs.
With these results, it is reasonable to assume that Benjamin Netanyahu will receive from the president a mandate to form the next government, with the right-wing bloc sitting pretty with 62 seats.
Despite the Supreme Court’s decision to disqualify former MK Michael Ben-Ari from running for office,
The right-wing parties get 7 seats.
The new right of Bennett and Shaked stands at 5 seats (a decrease in last week’s mandate), while Zehut led by Moshe Feiglin continues to gain momentum and this time receives six Knesset seats.
The survey was conducted among 613 respondents representing a representative sample of Israel’s adult population, with a sampling error of +/- 4%.
