Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud and Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid's Kahol Lavan are tied at 32 seats ahead of next week's election, the latest polls released on Friday by Channel 12 and Channel 13 News predict. (For the latest election polls - click here)

The polls also project the far-right Kahanist Otzma Yehudit passing the electoral threshold of 3.25 percent, thus receiving four seats.

The polls projected a right-wing bloc of 58-59 seats, and 53 seats for the center-left, leaving both blocs shy of the 61-seat majority necessary to form a government without Avigdor Lieberman's Yisrael Beiteinu.
