Israel elections: First exit poll – Likud 31, Yesh Atid 18

As the polls closed on election day 2021, Channel 12 News released an exit poll showing the Likud winning 31 seats, becoming the largest party in the Knesset by a wide margin.

The poll found the Likud winning 31 seats, Yesh Atid 18, Shas nine, Yamina, Yisrael Beyteinu, Blue and White, Religious Zionism, Labor and United Torah Judaism seven each, and Meretz six seats.

If the exit poll is accurate, then Benjamin Netanyahu will be able to form a coalition of 61 MKs if Yamina joins him.
