An opinion poll suggests that Israel's opposition Labor Party could nearly triple in strength in parliament under its new leader.
The poll conducted by the Dialog agency for the Israeli daily Haaretz says that under Shelly Yachimovich, Labor could win 22 seats in the 120-seat parliament, which would make it the second-largest bloc.
The former television journalist was chosen last week to lead Labor, which currently has eight seats in parliament.
Her message of social justice has resonated with protesters demanding lower living costs.
The poll, released Monday, says that if elections were held now, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's hardline Likud would remain on top.
The poll has a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points.
