Blue and White, Likud tied for Knesset, Zehut climbs up

Thus the Right bloc would have 57 seats, the Center-Left would have 56 and Zehut's 7 would be the tie-breaker.

Blue and White and Likud are both tied for most Knesset seats, each with 30 votes, according to a channel 13 poll published on Thursday.

For the Prime Minister position, 56% of the voters believe Benjamin Netanyahu should hold the position, while only 36% voted for Benny Gantz.

The surprise of the poll showed Zehut is expected to receive 7 Knesset seats, while until now Moshe Feiglin's party barely made it past the electoral threshold.

The poll also showed the Labor party gaining 10 seats; UTJ 7; URP 7; Hadash-Ta'al 7; New Right 5; Meretz 5; Kulanu 4; Shas 4; Ra'am-Balad 4.

Gesher and Yisrael Beitenu are not expected to receive enough votes to pass the threshold.

Thus the Right bloc would have 57 seats, the Center-Left would have 56 and Zehut's 7 would be the tie-breaker.
