Channel 12 reported on a poll showing that the remaining six seats would be in the hands of the Joint List, a coalition of predominantly Arab and left parties that supports talks with the Palestinians and rejects Israeli colonization in the West Bank.
The poll confirmed Israel’s political stagnation due to the fragmentation of the vote that forced to hold four elections in just two and a half years.
Forty-three percent of those polled advocated for an Executive led by opposition Benjamin Netanyahu and 36 percent by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.
The poll highlighted that the Likud party led by Netanyahu would continue as the largest party in the country with 34 seats, four more than the current ones, followed by the Yesh Atid party (There is a Future, in Hebrew), led by Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, with 19, two more.
The alliance is made up of right-wing, centrist, Arab Islamist and left-wing parties, all of them united by their rejection to the return to power of Netanyahu, who governed the country for 15 years, 12 uninterrupted.
