The 19th Knesset will have a record number of female and religious MKs, while the parties' size may change by Thursday, when "double envelope" votes are counted.

Fifty of the next Knesset's members will be first-time lawmakers. Yesh Atid's entire list is comprised of newcomers to politics, and only three out of Bayit Yehudi's expected 11 MKs served in the Knesset in the past. Likud, Labor, Meretz and The Tzipi Livni Party brought new faces, as will Strong Israel, Balad and UAL-Ta'al.
