Yahad, the far-right faction founded by Shas breakaway Eli Yishai, has won the minimum votes needed to gain representation in parliament, according to Channel 1 exit polls.

The other two networks - Channel 2 and Channel 10 - estimate that Yahad missed the cut.

If Yishai's party has indeed amassed the minimum votes needed to enter the Knesset, it would bolster the nationalist bloc of parties, making it more likely that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will form the next coalition.
