The latest poll shows the right wing block would receive 69 seats if elections were held today and Netanyahu’s Likud would receive 32 of those seats. The new wave poll shows a similar distribution to the current Knesset seats, with the exception of Likud’s five-seat gain and Defense Minister Barak’s Independence party losing its five seats. Yisrael Beitenu and Labor would add one seat each, and Shas would lose two. The seven smaller parties (UTJ/NU/NRP/Meretz/Arabs) would receive the same number of seats they won in the 2009 elections.

Telephone poll carried out by “New Wave” for Yisrael Hayom (Israel Today) newspaper the week of May 22 and published on May 27 with a representative sample of 620 adult Israelis including Israeli Arabs.
