 Israeli Election: Netanyahus tie with his rival is likely to continue in power


According to the Israeli Times, as of 9:00 local time (1400 Beijing time) on October 10, the results of the voting statistics show that Likud Group and the Blue and White Party won 26.27% and 25.94% of the votes respectively, and both parties can get 35 seats in 120 parliaments. The number of seats won by other parties did not reach double digits. But because five other right-wing and ultra-Orthodox parties have won about 30 seats, Netanyahu is likely to join these parties to form a right-wing coalition cabinet. Israels Haaretz newspaper reported that almost all right-wing parties have expressed support for Netanyahu as prime minister.

On the night of the 9th local time, Ganz and Netanyahu announced successively their victory. In his victory speech, Netanyahu said that the right-wing camp will continue to lead Israel in the next four years.

Thirty-five seats were also Likuds best election result in 16 years. In 2003, Likud Group led by then Prime Minister Sharon won 38 seats in the general election.

The Israeli Times quoted officials as saying that the turnout in the general election was 67.8%, down from 71.8% in 2015.
