The Right-wing parties could face a crisis if they need to build a coalition without Avigdor Liberman's Yisrael Beytenu party, a poll conducted by Yisrael Hayom found.
The poll found that if citizens were to vote today, Yisrael Beytenu would increase from its five seats to eight, making it the third-largest party after Likud, which would stand at 36 seats, and Blue and White, which would stand at 34.
UTJ would win seven seats, along with Shas Hadash-Ta'al. The New Right and Balad-United Arab List would each win five. Labor would fall from six to four, tying with the Union of Right-Wing Parties (URP) and Meretz.
Zehut would be left below the threshold with a mere two seats.
These results may pose a problem for the Right if the Likud is chosen to build a government again, as the Right-wing parties, without including Liberman would be standing at 59 seats. The minimum to build a coalition is 61.
Most Israelis, according to the poll, would not switch their initial vote if the new elections were today.
