Netanyahu will not form a government and expectations for a fifth election

A month before the elections a new Israeli poll shows that Prime Minister Netanyahu is still unable to form a government.

Jerusaem24 – A new Israeli poll shows that although Likud remains the largest party, Prime Minister Netanyahu is still unable to form a government.

About a month before the elections for the 24th Knesset, opinion polls continue to try to predict what the Knesset will look like after March 23.

And this morning an opinion poll conducted by Radio 103FM, published by Maariv newspaper, according to which, if elections were held today, and even if the right-wing party joined the right-wing bloc that supports Netanyahu, the bloc would have reached only 59 seats.

According to the poll, Likud is still the largest party in Israel, even in the 24th Knesset, with 28 seats. In second place, with 18 seats, is the “There is Future” party, led by Yair Lapid.

Then comes “A New Hope” party headed by Gideon Sa’ar with 13 seats, followed by Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked, which settles with 12 seats.

The ultra-Orthodox parties share 9 seats, the ultra-Orthodox parties occupy 15 seats, Shas 8 seats and United Torah Judaism 7, and Yisrael Beiteinu also has 7 seats, and the Labor Party continues to safely stand above the blackout rate of 6 seats.

According to the poll, 46% of respondents said that, in their opinion, Israel would be dragged into another round of elections after the current elections.

As competition rages inside the right-wing camp, the poll results showed that the “Tikva Hadshah” party, headed by Gideon Sa’ar, would win 13 seats, without the party succeeding in raising its seats in the opinion polls, which reached 22 with the launch of the party.

The same situation is facing the “Yamina” party headed by Naftali Bennett, who will get 12 seats, and has strengthened with one seat over the Likud party.

According to the poll, the Joint Coalition will win 9 seats, without the united list being able to exceed the threshold, while the Haredi parties maintain their strength by obtaining 15 seats, Shas 8 seats, and United Torah Judaism 7 seats.

The “Yisrael Beytenu” party, headed by Avigdor Lieberman, will get 7 seats, while the Labor Party, headed by Merav Michaeli, has retreated and stopped at 6 seats.

The results of the poll showed that 3 parties each will get 4 seats, the “Kahol Lavan” party 4 seats, “Meretz” 4 seats, and “Religious Zionism” 4 seats.
