Historic first: Haredi women’s party formed

For the first time in Israeli political history, a political party led by Haredi women has declared its intention to run in the upcoming elections.

The party will be led by Ruth Kuliak, a social activist who has worked to promote the advancement of women. After her, legal expert Noa Erez, and in third place, 21 year old Business Administration student Keren Mozen.

The party, to be named “Bizchutan” (“in their merit”), was announced by the three founders today at the Zionist Organization of America headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Ayelet Shaked leading in Bayit Yehudi primary count

The votes are still being counted in yesterday’s primary, but it appears that Ayelet Shaked is in first place, thereby securing the third spot on Bayit Yehudi’s list, after chairman Naftali Bennett and Tekuma leader Uri Ariel.

Based on this showing, Shaked, a non-religious candidate, will likely be given a ministry in the next government if Bayit Yehudi is part of the coalition.

Knesset Channel poll: Only slight changes

[CORRECTED]

The Knesset Channel broadcast a new poll today conducted by Panels Politics with single-seat changes from their previous poll last Tuesday.

Labor and Likud swapped positions, with Labor at 24 and Likud at 23.

Habayit Hayehudi and Kulanu each gain one seat, while Yahadut Hatorah and the Arab parties lose one.

This poll ranks the Arab parties separately, as they have not been able to agree on terms for running as a united list.

Seats Party
24 Labor with Livni
23 Likud
16 Habayit Hayehudi
12 Yesh Atid
9 Kulanu
7 Yahadut Hatorah
7 Yisrael Beyteinu
6 Meretz
6 Shas
5 Ra’am/Ta’al
5 Hadash

New Walla! poll consistent with earlier polls

Walla! published a poll today, conducted by TNS, which is consistent with the trends of last week’s polls.

If the Arab parties run separately, they poll at Ra’am Tal 6, Hadash 3, and Bal’ad 2, which would affect the other results, since the smaller Arab parties would not pass the threshold, giving seats to larger parties.

Seats Party
24 Likud
23 Labor with Livni
15 Habayit Hayehudi
11 United Arab List
10 Yesh Atid
10 Kulanu
8 Yahadut Hatorah
7 Yisrael Beyteinu
6 Meretz
6 Shas
