  1. “Frum representatives: fell from 39 to 28”
    This is the most inane comment yet on this site.
    How could you know how many frum voted – and to that specificity??????

  2. How can Deri claim Shas had a victory, saying “Now it is clear to all who follows in the derech of Maran”, when they lost 4 seats? He’s delusional!

  3. the frum representatives is not refering to number of voters. its refering to the amount of seats that frum parties won, and they did lose a lot of seats.
    Shas had a victory because Yishai’s party didn’t even make it in while Shas did.

  4. Does anyone know where I can find vote totals for parties that didn’t make the cut? Yachad? Bzchutan? Pirates? Na na nach? Goldstein brothers?
