Gantz and Lapid Present Joint Slate as Polls Thrust Them Ahead of Likud, Haaretz

The newly-formed alliance between Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid, Kahol Lavan, would overtake Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud if a general election was held today, polls conducted by Channel 12, 13 and Israel’s public broadcaster, Kan, showed on Thursday evening. Just hours after Gantz and Lapid announced the formation of Kahol Lavan, Channel 12’s poll showed the union would get 36 seats in the next Knesset, while Likud would receive 30. Channel 13’s poll, meanwhile, predicted Kahol Lavan would get 36 seats, compared to 26 for Likud. Kan’s poll also put Kahol Lavan on first place, with 35 seats, with Likud coming in second with 32.
