Bayit Yehudi Holds First Meeting Post Election


The Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) Party held its first faction meeting on Wednesday following the elections. Exit polls have predicted that the party will win 12 seats, making it the fourth or fifth largest party in the Knesset.
 
In the 2009 elections Bayit Yehudi received 3 seats, their lowest showing ever. Bayit Yehudi ran on a joint list with the National Union Party. In the 2009 elections, the National Union gained 4 seats. Two National Union Members of Knesset broke off and ran independently as the Otzma LeYisrael party. According to exit polls, they did not make the threshold.
