(Worthy News) - The New Right party appeared just short of crossing the election threshold to enter the Knesset, according to updated results released early Thursday with several thousand ballots still to be counted.
After the regular votes were counted, Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked’s New Right party narrowly failed to enter the Knesset, garnering just 3.14% of the vote, some 4,300 votes under the 3.25% electoral threshold.
According to the update released at 6:28 a.m. on Thursday, New Right had crept up to 3.22%, just 0.03% short of its target that would lift it from no seats to four seats. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
