A Walla! poll showed that if the ultra-Orthodox parties Shas and United Torah Judaism (UTJ) run together as the United List in the upcoming elections, they would receive only 11 seats, which is the same number of seats if running separately.
According the poll published on Thursday, 93% of Shas voters declared that they would vote for the united list, while 85% of UTJ would vote for the two parties combined.
The possibility of the two parties running together did not change the number of mandates of the other parties. According to the poll, the Likud received 33 seats, Benny Gantz's Israel Resilience 12 seats, the Joint List 10 seats, the New Right 9 seats, Labor seats, Yisrael Beytenu, Orly Levi-Abekassis's Gesher and Bayit Yehudi received 4 seats each, and Tzipi Livni's Hatnuah and Ahmad Tibi's Ta'al did not pass the threshold.
