One hundred and twenty lawmakers from 10 parties will take up their posts in the coming weeks, 40 of them rookie lawmakers, following Israel’s 20th general elections for the Knesset Tuesday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu looks to have retained the premiership after his Likud party garnered 30 seats to become the largest party in the plenum, in elections that were largely seen as a referendum on his rule.

Isaac Herzog’s Zionist Union party stood at 24 seats, the (Arab) Joint List won 13, Yesh Atid 11, Kulanu 10, Jewish Home 8, Shas 7, and Yisrael Beytenu 6, tied with United Torah Judaism. Meretz was the smallest party, with 5 seats.

A record 28 female MKs were slated to enter the Knesset, up slightly from 27 in the 19th Knesset and 21 in the 18th Knesset.

There was also a large increase in number of Arab MKs, 17, up from 12 after the previous elections.

Voter turnout stood at 72.3 percent, the highest since 1999, when it was 78.7%.
