An poll conducted for the Likud party showed that if elections were held today, the Likud party would receive 34 Knesset seats, Israel Hayom reported.

Opposition MK Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid party would be the second-largest, with 20 seats.

Meanwhile, the Zionist Union would drop from its current 24 seats to nine seats, the Joint Arab List would drop from 13 seats to 11, and the Sephardic-haredi Shas party would drop from seven seats to four - barely passing the electoral threshold.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman's Yisrael Beytenu party would lose one Knesset seat, dropping from 5 to 4, and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon's Kulanu party would drop from 10 Knesset seats to 6.

The Jewish Home party, however, would rise from 8 Knesset seats to 9, and the Ashkenazic-haredi UTJ party would rise from six seats to 9. Left-wing Meretz would rise from five seats to seven.

Former Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon's new party would fail to pass the electoral threshold, as would former MK Eli Yishai's new party. However, MK Orly Levi-Abekasis' new party would receive seven seats.
