Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the most-viewed politician on Wikipedia, with 450,340 page views in English and 53,630 in Hebrew.

Zionist Union is the party with the most page views, but its leaders Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni are in second and fourth place among candidates. Bayit Yehudi is the second-most viewed party, followed by Likud, Kulanu, Shas, Meretz and Yesh Atid.

Among candidates, Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett is in third place, Kulanu's Moshe Kahlon is fifth, Shas chairman Arye Deri is sixth and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid is seventh.

Wikipedia Israel is also working on new pages for candidates who are not yet MKs, and do not yet have their own page, but will qualify for one if they are elected to the Knesset, like Ayelet Nahmias-Verbin of Zionist Union, Yifat Shasha-Bitton and Eli Cohen of Kulanu, and Abed Ah-Hakim Hajj Yahya and Yusef Jabarin of The Joint List.
