Poll: Most Want to See Unity between Yachad And Shas


yiderA new Magar Mochot election poll carried out for Kol Berama Radio shows that if elections were held today, Shas would receive 7 seats, Yahadut Hatorah 7 and Yachad 5.

The poll, which was supervised by Professor Yitzchak Katz, was released on Monday, 11 Adar during the “Eight to Ten” program hosted by Mordechai Lavi.

Labor/The Movement: 24

Likud: 23

Bayit Yehudi: 12

Arab Bloc: 12

Yesh Atid: 11

Kulanu: 8

Shas: 7

Yahadut Hatorah: 7

Yisrael Beitenu: 6

Yachad: 5

Meretz: 5

Interestingly, 54% of the participants in the poll would like to see a union between the chareidim, religious and traditional Jews in the form of cooperation between Shas, Yahadut Hatorah and Yachad following elections.

Who is continuing the path of Maran Rav Ovadia ZT”L?

40%: Yishai

22%: Deri

38%: Neither of the two

54% of respondents stated with certainty that Shas will be a component in the next coalition government.

Would you favor an agreement between Shas and Yahadut Hatorah that neither enters into a coalition without the other?

57%: yes, it is the correct thing to do

43%: no, it is not the correct thing to do

  1. Cooperation between “chareidim, religious and traditional Jews” would have to include the Dati Leumi camp, led by Bayit Yehudi, and the many shomrei mitsvos (and traditional Jews) in Likud and Kulanu. In the outgoing Kenesset, it was the non-hareidi religious and traditional who decided to initiate the “war on the hareidim” by enabling such laws as the bill to conscript yeshiva students.

  2. Lieberman should pass a law that you need at least 15 seats to get into the knesset. That way we would lose Yesh Atid, Bayit Yehudi, and the Arab Parties.
    And all the frum parties would be forced to unite!
