Meretz doubles Knesset faction from 3 to 6 or 7

The Meretz Party doubled its Knesset mandates according to exit polls released Wednesday, jumping from its current three seats to either six or seven. After the results were published, party chairwoman Zehava Gal-On called for a strong opposition bloc to counter Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
Earlier in the afternoon she told The Jerusalem Post “I have a good feeling that we will get about eight to 10 mandates,” as she joined young activists giving out Meretz stickers and pamphlets outside the Ramat Aviv Mall in north Tel Aviv.
