Roughly one-quarter of a million voters chose parties that did not make it into Knesset in Tuesday’s elections. The largest party that failed to pass the 2% threshold was Otzma Leyisrael, which had 61,825 votes. It needed 15,000 more to enter Knesset.
Am Shalem had 42,095 votes, and Rabbi Amnon Yitzchak’s Koach Lehashpia party had 26,744. Eretz Hadasha had 26,331. The Calcala party, which won publicity for its controversial ads and use of celebrities, won just 1,881 votes.
