Likud and Labor may be neck-and-neck for the top spot, according to the latest elections poll - but a coalition win may go to the left. 

Likud and Labor have 24 seats each in the 20th Knesset, according to the Knesset Channel poll published Tuesday, followed by the Arab parties at 13 seats. 

Yesh Atid follows in fourth place with 12 seats; Jewish Home has fallen to fifth place at 11 seats. 

Kulanu would garner 8 seats, according to the poll, with both haredi parties - Shas and United Torah Judaism (UTJ) - at seven seats each. 

Bottoming out the poll are Meretz and Yisrael Beytenu, at five seats each, and Yachad-Ha'am Itanu, passing the threshold at four seats. 

According to the poll, the left-wing bloc of Labor, Yesh Atid, and Meretz would garner 41 seats in total; 54 seats together with the Arab parties.  

By comparison, the Right block - Likud, Jewish Home, and Ha'am Itanu - would garner 40 seats, according to these results; 45 with the addition of the right-leaning Yisrael Beytenu party.
