(BIN) – After it was announced on Thursday that the Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Power) party was polling at four mandates, another poll, this time from the Israeli Daily Yisrael Hayom, also showed the party getting four seats for the first time since elections were called in May on Friday. In an exclusive interview with Breaking Israel News, party head Itamar Ben-Gvir came out in favor of building the Third Temple. Four mandates are required for any political party to even enter the Knesset (parliament). This means that the fact that they are polling at four seats for the first time is especially significant. Interestingly, the same

day that they came out in favor of building the third Temple (Thursday) was the same day that the original poll in the Knesset channel showed them getting four seats. Another reason why the poll results are vital is that as a right-wing party, those four seats will likely secure Netanyahu a coalition following elections. According to the poll which was done in coordination with i24 News, the ‘right-wing’ block nears 60 mandates without Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beitenu (Israel is Home) party.
