Union of Right Wing Parties signs vote surplus agreement with Likud

The Union of Right Wing Parties, made up of the Jewish Home, National Union and extremist Otzma Yehudit factions, has signed a vote surplus agreement with the Likud party.

The treaty means that any “extra” votes — votes that are over the threshold for the party’s final number of Knesset seats but below the threshold to receive another seat — are pooled between the two signatory parties in the hopes that together there will be enough to gain another seat for one of them.
