>>Follow Matzav On Whatsapp!<<

A new survey conducted by pollster Camil Fuchs for Channel 13 News reveals a surge of 6 seats for the Religious Zionist Party under the leadership of Minister Bezalel Smotrich.

The poll showcases Benny Gantz’s party with 37 seats, while the Likud trails with 18 seats. Yesh Atid secures 13 seats, followed by Yisrael Beytenu with 10. Shas maintains its position with 9 seats, and Itamar Ben Gvir’s Otzma Yehudit Party holds onto 8.

United Torah Judaism secures 7 seats according to this poll, while Ra’am and Hadash each claim 4 seats. Labor and Balad fail to meet the electoral threshold.

The survey highlights that Gideon Sa’ar’s New Hope Party would secure five seats if it were to separate from the National Unity Party.

Should New Hope choose to run independently, National Unity would see a slight decline, winning 32 seats—five fewer than if they were to run jointly with New Hope.

Regarding the contentious issue of charedi conscription within the Draft Law, opinions diverge. 54% of respondents advocate for compulsory enlistment of charedim in the military, while 29% favor maintaining the current exemption.

Furthermore, when queried about the timing of elections, responses vary. 30% express a preference for immediate elections, another 30% support the continuity of the current government’s term, and 29% advocate for the formation of a new government within the existing Knesset.
