Religious Zionism chairman Bezalel Smotrich has ordered a poll gauging whether supporters of the far-right party would back a right-wing government that would rely on the support of the Islamist Ra’am party from the opposition, Walla reports.

According to the poll’s findings, slightly more than 50% of Religious Zionism supporters say they’d prefer such a coalition over a fifth consecutive election.

However, several Ra’am officials in recent weeks have spoken publicly against such a prospect.
