With about 15% of the double envelopes counted — around 105,000 votes — Meretz falls further from the threshold required to enter the Knesset.

Meretz now has around 3.17 percent of votes, as the hardline Arab Balad party drops below 3%, the Ynet news site reports.

So far, Meretz is receiving 2.4% of double envelope ballots, Ynet says, a lower percentage than from the regular ballots, making it increasingly unlikely the left-wing party has the votes required to enter the Israeli parliament.
