Jerusalem, Feb.17 (ANI): Three out of every five Israelis want a unity government in the country, The Jerusalem Post quotes a survey, as saying.
The survey was conducted among 498 Israelis who voted in last week's general election and ahead of the "Forming a Government" gathering to be held on Tuesday in ZOA House in Tel Aviv.
According to the survey, 47 percent of the people questioned thought a day after the elections that Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu should form the next government, while 39 percent thought Kadima leader Tzipi Livni should.
Sixty-five percent said they would like to see Kadima and Likud in a unity government and 54 percent of them, most of whom were Netanyahu supporters, said it should not be a rotation government.
More than half of those surveyed said Labor should stay in the opposition, but 55 percent said they wanted its chairman Ehud Barak to keep the Defense portfolio.
"The survey proves that most people don't think they erred in the way they voted and therefore another general election in the near future is not necessary," said Yigal Tzahor, the director of The Ideological and Educational Center of Berl Katznelson Fund, who initiated the survey and will host the convention in Tel Aviv.
