"The election is over and the voter has had his say," Ravivi wrote. "We're still learning the results but one thing is clear: We won! The leadership is definitely changing; we're going forward to give it to them! With results like these, it's going to be interesting," Ravivi said.

Chagit Moriah-Gibor from Efrat Sheli said "After a one-month campaign with almost no budget and pretty anonymous people who never sat in the municipality before, we come in as the third strongest list after the incumbent's and a list that's been there for 15 years. Six parties ran all-in-all.

"I'm mostly happy about the connection I made with such a quality bunch of people. I met many people who worry and care about Efrat just as I do." Regarding her opponents, she said "It warms the heart to see how much dedication and care people have - the candidates and their supporters as one."
