True, though there are smaller concentrations of Haredi voters that might be critical (Telzstone, Rechasim, Yavneel, and Hatzor haGlilit are all in marginal seats). But then there is the opportunity to run without an overall deal and instead reach agreements with the local communities for support.I can only imagine actual Israeli politics would look dramatically different under an actual FPTP system, but there is certainly something to the idea of a Likud-Shas-UTJ pact given the geographic concentration of the Haredi vote. OTOH, that probably also means they wouldn’t have much to lose from going it alone, and a Likud that can win a majority by itself (assuming the other secular right-wing parties stay in the Likud ITTL) is probably far less willing to work with them.
Hadn't thought of that - and then there'd be a counter narrative that the opposition is nowhere near if not counting Arab seats. Very healthy.Very nice indeed.
I do think that way of showing the Palestinian civilian areas works very well.
And I can see there being some very interesting narratives about how the Bibi majority is built entirely from seats in the occupied West Bank.
Maybe party vote shares by seat could be interesting? Just to zero in on wherever Yamina, the Joint List and so on get their best or their worst results
