A week ahead of elections, the Right-haredi bloc stands at 64 mandates and the Center-Left and Arab bloc at 56, according to a Dahaf Institute poll published by Channel 2.

Support for Habayit Hayehudi slightly slipped but for the most part a status-quo was maintained in the distribution of seats predicted for the next Knesset.

According to Channel 2, Naftali Bennett's Habayit Hayehudi party dropped to 12 mandates, one less than in the previous Dahaf poll. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman's joint Likud-Beteynu's list remained at 33 mandates.

The Labor party was slated to receive 17 seats, and Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid and Shas also remained steady with 11 mandates.

According to the poll, the Tzipi Livni party slid by two mandates, down to nine, while Meretz and United Torah Judaism would take six a piece. Meanwhile, Hadash would earn four seats, and Ta’al-United Arab List and Balad would each receive three mandates.
