Exit poll: Vote may empower Netanyahu to lead another government

Binyamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud gained 37 seats ahead of Benny Gantz’ opposition Kahol Lavan’s 32-3 in Monday’s Knesset election and commands a right-wing-religious bloc of 60, according to all the TV exit polls. This third general election in less than a year looks close to breaking the long political deadlock preventing the formation of a government. The Arab Joint list came third with 14-15 seats, the ultra-religious Shas, 9, Yisrael Beteinu (Lieberman) – 6-8, left-wing Labor-Meretz – 7-8, Habayit Hayehudi (right) – 6. and Torah Judaism – 7. If these figures are confirmed in the official tally of real votes, incumbent Prime Minister Netanyahu may be able to form his fifth government, after missing out in the last two rounds. The centrist-left wing bloc led by Benny Gantz can count on 54 seats with the support of the Joint Arab list.

It took Israel’s voter three rounds of to choose a leader, party and bloc to head its next government. Netanyahu’s campaign got off to a dismal start, with his main party rival Gideon Saar predicting he was a spent force. His challengers maintained that with a trial on three corruptions charges ahead of him two weeks after election day, he was unfit to serve as head of government.

    Go Bibi, Keep Israel Great….strong leaders make strong, difficult decisions and Gantz, having to use the Joint List, shows he’s not up to the task.

        I agree with you Bibi bends to diplomatic pressure and terrorism as all the leaders did since Oslo. Wars on Israel are the fruit of weakness of the politicians Israeli choose to elect.

      Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

      and all Adelson’s horses
      and all Saban’s men and Hillary
      Couldn’t put Kahanist Israel together again

        ‘Convert from Kahanism’ – no way the crimes are too vast, they’re going down trying to fight it out as an apartheid, the top IDF legal team itself is Israeli apartheid is ‘indefensible at the ICC’ and it will lose all its cases there. That’s the IDF saying that

        Apartheid South Africa actually had more legitimacy than Apartheid Israel. For a start at least they were honest and secondarily the European people arrived at much the same times as the African tribes that were setting in Southern Africa.

        Israel has no such excuse, the indigenous people (call them what you will) had been living in what was called Palestinian for many centuries.

        The Ashkenazi are simply European colonists that are performing ethnic cleansing. Put another way you came, you saw and you took. The fact is that you are trying to legitimize the ethnic cleansing of a people who have been expelled from land that they have owned for generations.

        You are doing to the Palestinians what Hitler wanted to do to you. That is to take your rights away and just make you disappear. Welcome to Israel the last outpost of the 🇮🇱New SS🇮🇱

    netanyanu(N) has been a great leader changing direction for the state from the the time he was 1st elected.
    economically;politically ; and militarily he has led the country making it stronger and stronger .ecnomic policies allowed the russian scientific and mathematical minds built but not used in russia to lead a technological and scientific revolution that lifted israel into a nation respected and exalted by the world.

    N s skills as a statesman as well as his relationship w/ trump has changed the direction and future of israel.

    psalm s says “g-d shall bless israel w/ strength; g-d shall bless israel w/ peace”– both N. and trump were part of israel s blessing for peace.

        Netanyahu’s going to prison first in Israel and then at the Hague – his strategic brilliance and can be employed in nonviolent ways with ingenious strategery of avoidance being extradited from Israel to The Hague for a war crimes tribunal, for it is not for nothing that is known as the Kahanist Mastermind

    Wasnt it just yesterday all the repugnants…ermmm..pundints were predicting low voter turnout? And now????
    With the Jewish and anti Israel Bernie blitz in the democrat party in the US, maybe Israelis have awakened and realize they need Bibi and DJT. And just so everyone knows. The democrats left Israel to hang. Remember obama, and how his admin refused to block the voting at the UN. and then tried to meddle in the elections to oust Bibi. He gave Iran billions with over 400 million in cash. On palletts. And a fake and gay,(like himself) nuke deal. That helps them make nukes to target Israel. Israel needs Bibi.

    And God.

      You may have forgotten the full extent of Obama’s treachery. He initiated, organized and drove the Resolution 2334 project. He was involved in drafting the resolution. It was beyond abstaining. He started it and recruited countries to present it for vote.

      @Larry you raise a very good point about repeating a lie over and over until it takes hold.

      Israel is the best of the best when it comes to this, though I’m just going to answer the point that you raised.

      Apartheid South Africa actually had more legitimacy than Apartheid Israel. For a start at least they were honest and secondarily the European people arrived at much the same times as the African tribes that were setting in Southern Africa.

      Israel has no such excuse, the indigenous people (call them what you will) had been living in what was called Palestinian for many centuries.

      @GST001,

      Ancient Israel invited the Romans in because of an over whelming external military threat which existed at that time, not that they couldn’t agree on how to rule their country……………………….what a mistake that invite turned out to be in more ways than one!

        DaveOrange… Agree Dave, the reasons for Invitation may be disputed, but the Roman did not leave & the Revolt in 70 AD-CE Forced Diaspora Name Change from Judea to Palestine until 1948 Corrected that History.
