Yesh Atid calculated by some to drop to 17 seats, Liberman up one

Some news outlets are calculating that Yesh Atid has dropped from 18 seats to 17 seats with the newest vote tally, and Yisrael Beytenu going up to 7 seats from 6.

Yesh Atid has 13.92% of the vote, with some 89% of ballots tallied.

The final seat count can only be calculated once all votes have been tallied as they are divvied on the basis of the percentage of parties that enter the Knesset, and are also affected by vote sharing deals to distribute leftover ballots that do not equal a full seat.

The final vote tally including double-envelope absentee ballots is only expected to be completed on Friday.
