Labor is back on top in the polls with 24 seats, edging out over Likud with just 23, according to the Panels Politics poll for the Knesset Channel.

Likewise, Jewish Home is making its own comeback, according to these statistics, with 12 seats instead of the 11 it has steadily held over the past few weeks; the Arab parties have 12 seats as well, as does Yesh Atid. 

Kulanu, Shas, and United Torah Judaism (UTJ) tie at seven seats each, followed by Meretz and Yisrael Beytenu at six seats each.

Yachad-Ha'am Itanu bottoms out the poll at four seats, just passing the Knesset threshold.

Despite its narrow lead in the polls, the question of who will actually manage to form the next government coalition is still anyone's guess.
