For extra lulz, Haaretz right now is calling a 60/60 deadlock between the center/left and the right/orthodox. Right: 42 Likud Beitenu 31 Habayit Hayehudi 11 Center: 42 Yesh Atid 19 Labor 15 Hatnuah 6 Kadima 2 Orthodox: 18 Shas 11 UTJ 7 Arab: 12 Ta'al 5 Hadash 4 Balad 3 Left: 6 Meretz 6 See how YOU can get to 61! As handicaps: For the right: picking off parties from the center is possible but problematic, short term and long term. Kadima is eminently purchasable, Yesh Atid less so. Hatnuah will almost certainly never serve in a Netanyahu cabinet due to personal ill will. Labor has said they will not serve in a Netanyahu cabinet and it's unlikely they'll change their mind (and if they do they could face defections). Getting the Orthodox parties is fairly easy but will require a lot of bribery and most likely will mean Yesh Atid is off the table. For the left: the Arab parties are off the table as a government based on Arab support has never happened and most likely would be considered illegitimate. This makes the left's path to 61 much harder. Most likely it would have to require a coalition with the Orthodox; this is theoretically possible as the Orthodox parties care about little save getting as much state money as possible (most of their constituents live off of welfare) but that same directive drives the resentment that got Yesh Atid votes so it's unlikely. It's going to be an interesting 2 weeks. Most likely the result is a right/orthodox/Kadima government with a 2 vote margin, which means new elections in months if not weeks.
