Israeli election- preliminary results

Benjamin_Netanyahu_wiki

Prime Minister Netanyahu. Looks like a fourth term.

With over 90% of the votes counted (almost 4 million), the results so far are:
Likud- 30
Labor- 24
Joint Arab list- 14
Yesh Atid- 11
Kulanu- 9
Jewish Home- 8
Shas- 7
Yisrael Beiteinu- 6
UTJ- 6
Meretz- 5
Yachad does not pass the threshold.

With Likud so far ahead of Labor, it is highly unlikely that Netanyahu will not be the first to have a chance at forming a coalition.
Such a coalition would have to include Jewish Home, Yisrael Beiteinu, Shas, UTJ and Kulanu- altogether a majority of 66 Knesset seats.

The numbers of seats may change slightly (1-2 seats up or down for each party) according to the final results.

Congratulations, Prime Minister Netanyahu!
