YERUSHALAYIM - While Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tries to fight off corruption probes, the media, and the left opposition, speculation has risen over who might succeed him in office if he is forced to resign.

On Sunday the latest poll indicated several possibilities, but no one in a commanding position.

The Panels Research poll said 38 percent of Israelis believe former Minister of Interior Affairs Gideon Saar fit to be prime minister, followed by Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon at 32 percent, former Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon at 30 percent, and current Education Minister Naftali Bennett with 26 percent, The Jerusalem Post reported.

According to the opinion sampling, Saar would strengthen the Likud’s prospects, winning one more Knesset seat as the party leader than Netanyahu, taking away five seats from Yesh Atid and two from Kulanu.
