Likud would lose four seats in the Knesset, going from 29 to 25 seats, if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were to be indicted, pending a hearing in February, according to an Army Radio poll on Tuesday.

The four parties each set to receive a Likud seat because of the indictment include, Israel Resilience, Yesh Atid, Yisrael Beytenu and Kulanu.

Army Radio compared the answers of two questions in their survey: "If there were elections today, who would you vote for?" to
"If the attorney-general decided to indict the prime minister, which would include bribery charges, which party would you vote for?"

• Joint List - 6 seats
• Kulanu 5 seats
• Gesher - 5 seats
• Yisrael Beytenu - 5 seats
• Meretz - 5 seats
• Jewish Home - 4 seats

Question 2: "If the attorney-general decided to indict the prime minister, which would include bribery charges, which party would you vote for?"
• Likud - 25 seats
Israel Resilience- 14 Knesset seats
• Yesh Atid - 14 Knesset seats
• Labor - 9 Knesset seats
• New Right - 7 seats
• United Torah Judaism - 7 seats

Joint List - 6 seats
Kulanu - 6 seats

The survey was conducted in conjunction with the Midgam and iPanel marketing research firms.
