Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed victory in Israel’s fourth election Wednesday. Yet the deeply divisive leader may again struggle to form a governing majority.
Netanyahu is Israel’s longest serving PM. This was hoped that Tuesday’s vote would make it possible for him to unite a right-wing coalition behind him. This comes after three inconclusive elections since 2019.
Netanyahu’s government has already inoculated roughly half of Israel’s nine million people.
Based on exit poll projections, Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud is winning the most seats in Israel’s 120-seat Knesset.
Moreover, Netanyahu’s path will not be so easy. As it will highly rest on a deal with his estranged former protege Naftali Bennett.
Netanyahu described Tuesday’s projections as a ‘huge win for the right’ and his Likud party.
