24 January, 15:40

    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, JANUARY 24 - Only 35% of Israelis are in favour of a project by Israel to unilaterally annex the Jordan Valley, while 30% are against the project, according to a poll by the website Walla as the project was relaunched in announcements related to the Trump plan for the Middle East.

    Among right-wing party sympathisers, the percentage increases to 48%.

    The poll showed a total of 44% of those who identify with the centre-left are in favour of the project.

    In the same poll, by the Midgam Institute, Walla added that if elections were held today, the centrist Blue and White party of Benny Gantz would win 35 of the 120 seats in the Knesset, while Likud would win 32.

    This poll confirms that, at least for now, the political stall among the two major blocks in the Knesset remains unchanged.

    The stall has forced the country to go to new elections on March 2, the third time in less than a year.(ANSAmed).
