With all of the votes counted, the following is the list of of candidates set to become members of the next Knesset.

There are 49 new lawmakers, of them 11 are in Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud and 24 in Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid's Kahol Lavan.

The number of women parliamentarians remains about the same - 30 out of 120. This places Israel in the 69th place internationally in women's representation (compared to 54th place in the 2015 election). 

Out of the 65 members who are likely to make up the next Israeli government only 13 are women - inluding 10 from the Likud's 35 and only three others. The two largest parties by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's side, both ultra-Orthodox, ban women from joining their slate altogether. In addition, 98 Knesset members were born in Israel and 22 were born abroad.

LIKUD, HEADED BY PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

Likud champions tough security policies when it comes to Iran, Syria and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Many of its members oppose the creation of a Palestinian state. Benjamin Netanyahu, in a last-minute election promise, said he would annex Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank if he wins another term. In the run-up to the vote, Likud has rallied around Netanyahu, who is facing possible indictment in three corruption cases in which he has denied any wrongdoing.

KAHOL LAVAN, HEADED BY BENNY GANTZ

Former military chief Gantz emerged as a serious rival to Netanyahu. His Gantz is a popular former armed forces chief and a political newcomer. He joined forces with the right-wing Moshe Yaalon, a former defence minister, and centre-left former finance minister Yair Lapid to form the new centrist Kahol Lavan party. Gantz has called for pursuing peace with the Palestinians while maintaining Israeli security interests. He has signalled he would make territorial concessions toward the Palestinians but has also sidestepped the question of Palestinian statehood.

UNITED TORAH JUDAISM, HEADED BY DEPUTY HEALTH MINISTER YAAKOV LITZMAN

United Torah Judaism represents ultra-Orthodox Jews, or Haredim, of European origin. Successive coalition governments have had to rely on support from ultra-Orthodox parties, which traditionally put their sectoral demands above larger issues like security and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. UTJ is primarily concerned with safeguarding state benefits for Haredi men who devote themselves to full-time religious study and do not serve in the conscript military or work.

The union includes Jewish Power, an ultra-nationalist religious party that includes disciples of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane who advocated the "transfer" of Palestinians to neighbouring Arab countries and a ban on intermarriage between Jews and Arabs. It is the most prominent political representative of Israeli settlers in the West Bank. It repudiates the idea of a Palestinian state and stresses Israel's biblical and religious connections to land Palestinians seek for a state.

Yisrael Beiteinu's leader, Moldovan-born Lieberman, is a former defence minister whose policies include trading Arab towns in Israel to any future Palestinian state for territory in the West Bank where Jewish settlements have been built. He also wants to make loyalty to the state a condition for citizenship. The far-right party counts on the support of immigrants from the former Soviet Union.
