The 1969 election is notable for the fact that the Alignment were returned to power with the largest number of seats ever won in an Israeli election (57 of the 120). This can be put down to the government's popularity following the country's victory in the
Six Day War, as well as the fact that the Alignment were formed from a merger of the four most popular left-wing parties who between them had taken 51.2% of the vote in the previous election.
It was also the last election with such a decisive majority for the left-wing in Israel, as the disastrous
Yom Kippur Warshortly before the next elections seriously damaged the Alignment's credibility, with their majority over Gahal reduced to just 12 seats.
The Seventh Knesset
Golda Meirof the Alignment formed the fifteenth government, a national unity government including Gahal, the National Religious Party, the Independent Liberals, Progress and Development and Cooperation and Brotherhood. There were 24 ministers.
Gahal resigned from the coalition on 6 August 1970 after the government had decided to adopt the
The seventh Knesset was one of the most stable, with only one new party created (and that itself was virtually a rename of an existing party) and four MKs changing parties.
