The final tally of Knesset seats remained unchanged after soldiers' absentee ballots were counted.

Kadima remained the largest party, with 28 seats, while Likud followed closely with 27.

Next in line is Yisrael Beiteinu, with 15 seats; Labor, 13; Shas, 11; United Torah Judaism, 5; National Union, 4; United Arab List-Ta'al, 4; Hadash, 4; Meretz, 3; Balad, 3; and Habayit Hayehudi, 3.

These are the final results; the soldiers' votes not garner Likud or Yisrael Beiteinu an additional seat, despite expectations.

Each seat represents about 28,000 votes. Parties need at least 2 percent of the vote to make it into the Knesset. The party closest to the cutoff was the Green Movement-Meimad, but it was a full 40,000 votes away.
