According to a poll conducted by the Direct Polls Institute, if elections were to be held today, the Likud would win 38 seats and Israeli Resilience - Labor would end up with 16.

Against the backdrop of Likud and Blue and White procrastination in signing a coalition agreement, a poll published Sunday revealed that the Netanyahu-led Likud would receive its best result in years.

According to the survey conducted by the Direct Polls Institute, if elections were held today, the Likud would end up with 38 seats. Israeli Resilience – Labor would come in with 16, the Joint Arab List with 15, Yesh Atid - 14, Shas - 9, United Torah Judaism - 8, Yisrael Beytenu - 8, Yamina - 7, Meretz - 5, Orly Levy's Gesher - 0.93%, and Otzma Yehudit would again fall far short of the voting threshold with 0.30%.

The above figures provide at least part of the answer for Netanyahu's wavering in meeting all of Blue and White's demands and signing the agreement drawn up on Passover eve between the parties' negotiating teams.

Altogether, the poll gives the right-haredi bloc 62 seats prior to Orly Levy-Abekasis switching sides and Tzvika Hauser and Yoaz Handel's new Derech Eretz faction announcing whom they would support in forming a coalition.
