  •  It would hardly be unprecedented; the 11th (1+ / 0-)

    Knesset (when now President Peres was PM for the first time) did just that.

    Of course, things weren't nearly as divided then. The top 2 parties (the Alignment, even after Mapam left) and Likud had 2/3 of the seats combined.

    No 2 parties have even had half the seats in the last 4 Knessets.

    •  Though there were 15 lists elected that year (0+ / 0-)

      (including Kach for the first and only time), the threshold was also only 1%.

      6 of the 15 lists got less than the current 2% threshold, and another 2 got less than the 2.5% threshold that was considered but didn't pass during the 17th Knesset.

      Whereas all 12 lists elected to the 18th Knesset got over 2.5% of the vote.
