Israeli Doctor: 600 At-Risk Children Got Vaccinated Against COVID Without Major Side Effects
A new poll released by Channel 12 news shows the political system is set to remain in limbo after the election, with no party having a clear path to form a government.
The poll saw Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party win 28 seats; Yesh Atid 19 by Yair Lapid; Yamina 13 by Naftali Bennett; New Hope 11 by Gideon Sa’ar; Common List 9; Shas 8; Israel Beytenu 7; United Torah Judaism 7; and Labor 6.
Blue and White, Meretz and Religious Zionism all sit just above the electoral threshold with 4 seats each.
Meanwhile, the Arab separatist party Ra’am sits just below the 3.25% threshold with 3.1%.
The anti-Netanyahu bloc has 60 seats, according to the survey. Netanyahu’s religious bloc has 47, with Yamina potentially raising it to 60.
When asked who they preferred as prime minister, 35% said Netanyahu, 20% said Lapid, 12% said Sa’ar and 10% said Bennett.
Ra’am has indicated that he could support a Netanyahu-led coalition if it enters the Knesset. But when asked about the issue, right-wing voters opposed a Ra’am-backed government 55% to 28%.
On the center-left, 49% supported a coalition including the Joint List, while 43% opposed it.
When also asked if they agreed with the prime minister’s assessment earlier this week that the COVID-19 pandemic is behind Israel, 71% said no while 24% said yes.
The survey was conducted by the Midgam Institute.
