Jerusalem – The far-right Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power) Party may make it into the Knesset with four seats following the Sept. 17 election, according to a Kan news poll published on Tuesday.

This is the fourth poll showing Otzma Yehudit garnering enough seats.

According to the Kan poll, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party still falls short of a 61-seat right-wing majority, even with Otzma Yehudit. Without Yisrael Beiteinu, which according to the poll received nine seats, the right-wing bloc would have only 58 seats.

The poll also shows that the Blue and White Party leads the Likud by one point, 32 to 31, and that the third-largest party would be the Joint List with 10.

The ultra-Orthodox Shas and United Torah Judaism parties both had seven. Yamina, led by Ayelet Shaked, got nine.

A poll published on Monday by the Walla news site also found that Blue and White had a one-point lead, and had Yamina and the Joint List tied for third with nine seats each.
