Exit polls in Israel's parliamentary elections (third in a year) show the victory of Benjamin Netanyahu's party.
He has already managed to announce his victory and thank supporters for their support and activity at polling stations.
The results are as follows:
Likud Party (B. Netanyahu) - 37 seats
Blue and White (B. Gantz) - 32-33 seats
Joint List (A. Uda) - 14-15 seats
Shas Party (A. Deri) - 9 seats
Yisrael Beiteinu (A. Lieberman) has 6-7 seats
United Tora Judaism Party (A. Litzman) - 7-8 seats
Labor-Gesher-Meretz (A. Perets) - 6-7 seats
Yamina Party (N. Bennett) has 6-7 seats
What does this all mean?
First, Netanyahu has improved its performance over the last election. Apparently, Trump's high profile "peace plan" on Palestine and the promises of annexation played a role. Secondly, his right-wing counterparts sat down a little. Third, it has maintained its confident result, becoming the third-largest in the Knesset by force, the Arab United List Party.
In total, Netanyahu and his allies from the right-wing and right-wing radical parties are getting exactly 60 seats out of 120. That is, they need only one MP to get the majority, though not very stable.
Let us wait for the official results, and then we will analyze what coalition combinations may appear for the third time in the last year and whether Netanyahu can take power this time.
