The polls show an increase in support for former Security Minister Benny Gantz’s “National Unity Party.”
Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition would lose its majority in the Israeli Knesset if elections took place today, three new public surveys found, Israeli media reported.
The polls showed an increase in support for former Security Minister Benny Gantz’s “National Unity Party.”
A poll published by the Israeli Channel 13 found that Netanyahu’s coalition would win as few as 49 seats in a vote; a remarkable decrease from its current 64 seats.
On the other hand, Gantz’s “National Unity Party” would win as many as 30 seats, in comparison with its current 12 seats in the Knesset.
In the same context, a poll by “Israel’s” public broadcaster Kan suggested that the Prime Minister’s coalition would win only 51 seats if an election were to be organized today — 10 seats short of a majority in the 120-member parliament.
The Israeli Channel 14’s poll predicted that the coalition would win 58 seats in the Knesset.
The three surveys suggested that the Labour Party would not successfully pass the electoral threshold, in which an Israeli party must receive at least 3.25% of the vote to get a seat in the Knesset.
It is noteworthy that the Israeli occupation’s next elections are scheduled to be held in 2026.
This comes as the Israeli occupation PM is facing criticism represented by huge, violent protests organized by the opposition and is under scrutiny over his government’s plan to approve a judicial overhaul legislation that would undermine the Israeli Supreme Court’s power.
In late March, Netanyahu ordered a legislation halt to allow Israeli occupation President Isaac Herzog to lead negotiations aimed at reaching a broad consensus.
