Poll: Yechimovich Could bring 22 Seats


Labor party candidate MK Shelly Yechimovich could bring the party back from the brink of irrelevance by bringing the party to 22 seats in the next Knesset, according to a survey conducted by Dialog for Haaretz. Rival candidate MK Amir Peretz could turn the party around as well, but would bring 18 seats, the survey found.

Labor won 13 seats in the last election, and subsequently split, leaving the party with just eight seats.
