In the upcoming general elections, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud Party would receive between 27 and 30 seats in the next Knesset, making it the largest party yet again, a sum of recent polls indicate.

Next in line would be Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid Party, which is predicted to receive between 15 and 18 seats. The Labor party is projecting roughly 11 parliament seats and a hypothetical new party by former IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. (res) Benny Gantz would reach 15.

The Jewish Home party is expected to grow slightly, reaching somewhere between 9-11 seats, as opposed to their current occupation of 8 such parliament seats. The Ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism is set to remain at 7 seats, while the Shas party is expected to reach 5. The Kulanu and Israel Beitenu are expected to reach between 5 and 7 seats, as does Meretz.

The current polling data points to another victory for Netanyahu’s Likud party with no major changes to Israel’s electoral map, giving validity to the prime minister’s Monday night proclamation that current composition of the Coalition, would be “the basis for the next one.”
