 Israel Elections 2006: Actual Results

Introduction

OK, so this is the last in this series of postings. Here are the actual results, which do not look anything like the opinion surveys. As I wrote:

"As the Israeli political apparatus is able to generate surprises, and as 28% of the votes  are reportedly still  "undecided," surprises may not be so surprising. "

Surprises were duly generated:

The results are below and the last surveys are below it, and you can see that the polls were not worth much.

The probably final Knesset seat tally is as follows: (Updated April 3, 2006)

29 Kadima
19  Labor-Meimad
12 Likud
12 Shas
11 Yisrael Beiteinu
09 National Union-National Religious Party
07 Pensioners' Party
06 United Torah Judaism
04 Ra'am-Ta'al
03 Hadash
03 Balad
