Knesset Jeremy Analysis: The right-left block is tied at 60 in latest poll. With the new budget passed the current coalition should have smooth sailing until the start of 2015 unless diplomatic progress leads to a Bayit Yehudi exit. The Knesset started their recess. They will return for the winter session from October 14 2013 to March 19 2014. After going on another break they will return from May 12 2014 to Aug 6 2014.
