A party led by former prime minister Ehud Olmert and including former Kadima leader Tzipi Livni, current Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid would win 31 seats in the January 22, 2013 election, a Smith research poll conducted exclusively for The Jerusalem Post revealed Thursday.

The poll found that such a party would win more seats than Likud, which would receive 27 mandates. Yisrael Beytenu would come in third, with 14 mandates, closely followed by Labor with 12, and Shas with 11 seats.  

The poll results follow reports of progress on Wednesday by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s political opponents, in their efforts to build a “Center-Left mega-party” that could pose a serious challenge to him in the upcoming general election.
