As Israel heads into its third election in the span of a year, the number of party lists that will be elected to the 23rd Knesset is expected to hit a record low.

KAN's Naomi Segal put the question to Dr. Ofer Kenig, a researcher at the Israel Democracy Institute, who conducted a preliminary analysis of the registered rosters in the upcoming national ballot.
