    elections for the seventh knesset were held in israel on 28 october 1969. voter turnout was 81.7%.[1]

    the alignment coalition was returned to power with the largest number of seats ever won in an israeli election (56 out of 120). this was attributed to the government's popularity following the country's victory in the six-day war, and that the alignment had been formed by an alliance of the four most popular left-wing parties, who between them had received 51.2% of the vote in the previous elections in 1965. as a result, golda meir remained prime minister.
