The addition of former military chief Gadi Eizenkot to the alliance between the New Hope and Blue and White parties — now named National Unity — will cause little change in the coming elections, according to four polls published this evening.

Perhaps more importantly, all the surveys predict that the Likud-led right-religious bloc will not garner 61 seats, meaning Israel’s years-long political crisis, which has already generated five election cycles in under four years, is poised to continue.

Polls during the past two weeks had placed the New Hope and Blue and White alliance at between 10-12 seats.

Following are the results of a survey by the Kan public broadcaster:
