Likud, climb­ing in polls, is pro­jected to win 32 seats

The Jewish Voice - - NEWS IN REVIEW -

(Is­rael Hayom via JNS) Is­raeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu's de­ci­sion on Tuesday to re­voke a com­pro­mise that would have pre­vented the mass de­por­ta­tion of il­le­gal African mi­grants in Is­rael ap­pears to have ben­e­fited his Likud Party.

Ac­cord­ing to a poll con­ducted by Chan­nel 10 News, if a gen­eral elec­tion were held now, Likud would win 32 Knes­set seats—far more than any other party.

The poll pre­dicted 21 seats for the Yesh Atid Party, 13 for the Joint Arab List and only 12 for the Zion­ist Union.

Habayit Hayehudi was pro­jected to se­cure 10 seats. Meretz, which just elected Knes­set mem­ber Ta­mar Zand­berg as party chair­woman, and Fi­nance Min­is­ter Moshe Kahlon's Ku­lanu Party were pre­dicted to win seven seats each.

The poll showed Yis­rael Beytenu, un­der De­fense Min­is­ter Avig­dor Lieber­man, col­lect­ing five seats, which is the same num­ber pro­jected for United To­rah Ju­daism.

MK Orly Levy-Abeka­sis's as-yet un­named new party and Shas would win four seats a piece.
