To win the election, Netanyahu may turn to an unlikely partner
- A number of factors have led to a situation in which it's conceivable that Likud -- which generally earns 15-20% fewer seats than polls indicate -- could tie Jewish Home with 18 or 19 seats, or even come in behind Jewish Home. Either scenario would make Labor/Livni the largest party. For Netanyahu and Bennett, this scenario means falling into the opposition, giving both an incentive to merge.
- Labor's Herzog is negotiating to bring Shaul Mofaz-- whose Kadima party is polling at zero seats--onto his list. The final decision will be made after Labor's primary next week.
- Moshe Kahlon intends to present the top ten candidates on his list next week and officially kick of the campaign for Kulanu, which has been losing seats in recent polls.
