Kachol Lavan edges ahead of Likud in 91pc vote count. Neither holds majority

According to 91pc count of the votes in Israel’s general election on Sept. 17 Benny Gantz’s Kahol Lavon advances slightly to 26.3pc of the vote, a hair ahead of Binyamin Netanyahu’s 25.7pc. With fellow right-wing parties, Netanyanu garners 55 Knesset seats (out of 120) and Gantz 56 for a left-of center cabinet, creating a standoff. Neither can form a government without the other and so President Reuven Riviin, after consultations with party leaders, is expected to call on the two leading parties to form a national unity government. Negotiations are likely to lead to the premiership rotating between Netanyahu and Gantz. Final results not expected before Thursday when the soldiers ballots are in.

The Joint Arab List appears to have gained strength with 13-15 seats (instead of its current 11), while Yisrael Beitenu headed by Avigdor Lieberman (who spoiled Netanyahu’s attempt to form a government after the April election) has also profited (from 6 to 8-9).

Central committee figures after 90.4% tally:

Kachol Lavan 25.66pc – 32 seats.

Likud 25.03pc – 31 seats.

Joint (Arab) List 10.71pc – 13 seats

Shas 7.56pc – 9 seats

United Torah 6.25pc – 8 seats

Yisrael Beitenu 7.11pc – 9 seats

Yemina 5.73pc – 7 seats

Labor-Gesher 4.81pc – 6 seats

Democratic Union 4.30pc – 5 seats

Netanyahu appearing before his party activists early Wednesday said he would negotiate with fellow party leaders for the formation of a strong pro-Zionist government and prevent the rise of an anti-Zionist administration. He defined this as an government which relied for its majority on the Arab parliamentary faction, whose leaders, he said, refuse to recognize the state of Israel and who support its enemies. But according to partial results, Netanyahu stressed, a narrow right-wing government with a 61-member majority must be ruled out. The final results are still awaited later Wednesday.
Gantz responding to partial results pledged to strive for a unity government that represented the will of the majority. He did not repeat his campaign pledge of a “secular government.”. Netanyahu had not achieved his objective, said Gantz, but Kachol Lavan (Blue-White) had justified its fundamental idea in a big way and was here to stay.

DEBKAfile reported Tuesday night:

Three sample polls from Israel’s national election on Tuesday deny incumbent Prime Minister/Defense Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his Likud list a majority bloc of 61 Knesset members for leading another a right-wing government. Real results will not be known until Wednesday. The two largest parties Likud and Blue White are are too close to call.

Neither the right-wing bloc led by the prime minister nor the rival center-left Kachol Lavan (Blue-White) headed by Benny Gantz have enough support to form a majority government, without crossovers.

    I am sad to see Bibi go… But I have to be honest. I really welcome Gantz. A refreshing Israel. And to rebuild Israel with nice Israelis and Jews. And a bit more appreciation and equality for people that are not Jews also. A bit more like what the Torah describes actually. – Going too far too the left or going too the right can lead a nation to severe issues. Appreciate the service Bibi has done. But I have had enough of racism. I know that God can work through anyone or anything. And not exclusively Jews or Israelis exactly… So this is going to be great for Israel. 🇮🇱 Congratulations!

      This is very good for the country and will help to get all Israelis working for the good of the country.

      We have for far to long allowed a part of our population to sit at home unproductivly and feed off the State. Now they are going to have to contribute and serve in the IDF.

      This is going to make the nation stronger and instill a sense of responsibility and a work ethic in these communities.

          Huh? Which universe are you in? Figs from Breaking Israel

          Israelis with the right to vote: 6,394,030

          Israelis who voted: 2,237,073 (34.99%)

          Valid ballots cast: 2,224,667

          Invalid ballots: 12,406

          So only 35% voted if this is true – wh. surprises me and would actually denote a low-participation democracy.

The “new” that come now, are in charge of guiding the Jewish people towards victory, because the war goes on and on until it crushes the Persian murderers …
    You are Israel! You are the overwhelming force against Islamic killers! Show Europe, Oh Jerusalem, that you will not let yourself be killed by the Mohammedan scum! The same anti-Jewish garbage they have welcomed in Brussels! The same Islamic killers who are on a war footing across the planet!

    First: You make the election seem like it’s too close to call.
    1b: If you allow exit polling, you fake that too, easy peasy, in the US, they just don’t allow it anymore because they’re too dumb to know how to use it to their advantage, they keep on showing over 2% variance of reported results, which all studies show: faked/rigged elections…
    Second: You just declare the person you want to win irrespective of the voting outcome.
    Three: You never allow a disinterested third party or org to audit the election results or election system.

    Just like home! For smart people, you don’t act very smart.
