A Channel 1 poll released on Monday revealed that 49 percent of Israeli voters believe current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should keep his job, with 33 percent expressing a preference for Labor Party leader Isaac Herzog.

Herzog and former Hatnua Party chief Tzipi Livni have assembled a joint list, called the Zionist Camp, to run in the upcoming elections, set for March 17.

According to the poll of 1,500 people, the three top political parties are the Likud, with 25 mandates, the Zionist Camp with 24, and the Jewish Home, with 15, Israel’s NRG News reported.

A new Knesset Channel survey on Tuesday, meanwhile, showed the Likud Party leading with 24 seats over 23 for the Herzog-Livni alliance.

Finance Minister Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party’s share would rise to 12 seats, compared with 10 in a previous survey, while Economy Minister Naftali Bennett’s Jewish Home party would match the earlier survey’s 15 seats.

Among the ultra-Orthodox parties, the Shas party, despite sharp internal dissent, would win six seats, while Eli Yishai and his Am Itanu party would take only three seats, one below the threshold for entry into the 120-member Knesset. United Torah Judaism would win eight seats.

The results also showed that Moshe Kahlon’s Kulanu party would win eight seats, while Yisrael Beiteinu, led by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, would win seven.

On the left side of the ledger, a joint Arab party would win 11 seats, and Meretz, six.
