Binyamin Netanyahu appears to be headed into a greater victory than predicted by exit polls, with 30 seats. “Zionist Camp” has 24 • Full Story
As counting of votes continues in the elections for the 20th Knesset, the Likud party may be headed for an even bigger victory than exit polls predicted.
As of 4:00 a.m. (Israel time), 95% of the ballots have been counted and the Likud is leading the pact with 30 seats. The “Zionist Union” of Labor and Hatnua has 24 seats.
The Joint Arab List has 13 seats, followed by Yesh Atid with 11 seats and Moshe Kahlon’s Kulanu with ten.
The Jewish Home has eight seats, the haredi parties Shas and United Torah Judaism each have seven seats, Yisrael Beytenu has six and Meretz closes out the list with four seats.
Despite earlier indications that it may have passed the threshold, it appears as though Eli Yishai’s Yachad party will be left out of the Knesset.
