Results indicate fewer women lawmakers in upcoming Knesset

With a picture forming of the next Knesset, it appears that there will be fewer female lawmakers in the upcoming session.

If the current results — after 97% of the votes counted — remains, there will be 28 female lawmakers, down from 33 in the last Knesset.

This would end a trend of increasing female representation in recent years.

Only one party, Meretz, would be headed by a woman.
