Exit polls show Israel election too close to call

Exit polls showed the result of Israel's repeat general election was too close to call on Tuesday, as media and some supporters of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu waited for updates at the Likud party headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Israeli television projected that Netanyahu’s right-wing party would win between 31 and 33 of parliament’s 120 seats....but showed the party of his opponent, former military Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, with 32 to 34 parliament seats.

The tight race means Netanyahu’s battle for a record fifth term could stretch on for days or even weeks.

…Because coalitions are the key to victory in Israel… and negotiations have been known to drag out.

Tuesday’s vote followed an inconclusive election in April, in which Netanyahu failed to put together a government.

Israel's longest-serving prime minister is also facing possible criminal charges in three corruption cases.
