Election Results

With 99% of the votes counted, the results are:

Kadima 28
Likud 27
Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel Our Home) 14
Labor 13
Shas 11
United Torah Judaism (UTJ) 5
Ichud Leumi (National Union) 4
Jewish Home 3
Meretz 3
Arab parties 12

Thoughts:

  • Labor has been relegated to 4th place, overtaken by Yisrael Beiteinu.
    רמז לדבר: והשב את העבודה לדביר ביתך ואשי ישראל
  • Anyone have a count on how many religious Jews are headed for the 18th Knesset (assuming these results are final and assuming "religious" is Shemirat Shabbat, Kashrut and Taharat Hamishpaha)?

according to http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-3669995,00.html it went down to 28 religious MKs..down from 34 in the 17th knesset...
and some of these are women.
looks like it will be harder to get the minyan for mincha... (unless you count aides and all the other religious people in knesset who are not MKs...)
