For the first time in over 30 years, the new Knesset might not have any representation from the Druze community, if the current results hold.

Meretz has Ali Salalha at number 4 on its list, but the party is currently just short of crossing the electoral threshold.

In Yisrael Beytenu, Hamad Amar is number six on the list, but the party is currently set to win five seats.

Likud has  Abed Afif at number 44 and National Unity has Akram Hasson at number 16, both far from realistic positions.
