Another poll shows Meretz failing to enter Knesset

The latest poll from Kan News once again shows the left-wing Meretz party failing to pass the electoral threshold in the next election, while it is not clear whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can form a coalition.

The poll gives Likud 29 seats; Yesh Atid 20; New Hope 12; Yamina 11; Joint List 8; Shas 7; United Torah Judaism 7; Yisrael Beytenu 7; Labor 6; Blue and White 5; Religious Zionism 4; and Ra’am 4.

Netanyahu and his religious allies have 47 seats, while Yamina and Ra’am, parties that have not ruled out backing Netanyahu but which haven’t pledged to do so, have 15 more. If they do back Netanyahu, that would clinch the premier a majority with 62 seats.
