A new poll conducted by Mano Geva and the Midgam Institute among about a thousand respondents finds that a new right-liberal party would succeed in bringing seats from the right and the center and changing the current balance of blocs.

Participants in the poll were asked about two options: A party headed by former Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and one headed by former Communications Minister Yoaz Hendel.

From the responses of the participants in the survey, it emerged that a party led by Naftali Bennett, in which Yoaz Hendel will be a senior member, will succeed in obtaining nine seats – with one of them coming from the Likud, one more from the Religious Zionist Party and the rest from parties which are currently in the opposition.

A party led by Hendel obtains close to five seats - two of which come from the Likud and the rest from the National Unity and Yesh Atid parties.

A party led by Bennett obtains eight seats and takes one seat from the Likud and the rest from parties which are currently in the opposition - Yesh Atid and National Unity.

In a recent survey carried out by Channel 12 News and in which this possibility was tested, a party led by Bennett won eight seats. A recent poll carried out by the Maariv newspaper gave a party led by Hendel six seats.
