Excess Votes Deal for Likud, Habayit Hayehudi

Likud Beyteinu is expected to sign a deal Wednesday with the Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home) – Tekuma faction that will allow one of the two parties to benefit from excess votes for either.

Parties can make deals such that if both get extra votes that do not suffice to earn an additional Knesset seat, the votes can be added and given to one of the parties, allowing it to take a new seat.
