Elections in Israel - final results
The Central Election Committee has released the results of the elections, based on 99.5% of the votes, and the expected allocation of seats in the 19th Knesset:

  • Likud Beiteinu - 31 (23.25%)
  • Yesh Atid - 19 (14.19%)
  • Labor - 15 (11.45%)
  • Shas - 11 (8.83%)
  • Habayit Hayehudi - 11 (8.76%)
  • United Torah Judaism - 7 (5.31%)
  • Hatnuah - 6 (5.02%)
  • Meretz - 6 (4.59%)
  • United Arab List - Ta'al - 5 (3.80%)
  • Hadash - 4 (3.12%)
  • Balad - 3 (2.66%)
  • Kadima - 2 (2.09%)
According to the Central Election Committee, 66.6% of Israelis exercised their right to vote. Out of some 3.767 million votes cast, only about 40,000 were disqualified. Voter turnout was the highest since 1999.

Nearly half of the 19th Knesset seats will be filled by fresh faces, and statistics show that the next Knesset will probably include 26 women - the highest ever in Israel.
