Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared victory Tuesday night after polls closed.
"Today the real Likud won. We proved that our strength is in our unity. We will continue to lead responsibly for better education, economy, and security for all the citizens of the State of Israel," he said.
The prime minister was leading initial counts Tuesday overnight, after rainy weather kept polls open later than schedule.
According to Army Radio, Netanyahu led challenger Moshe Feiglin at 63 percent. Netanyahu's rival garnered 36% of votes, according to the initial count.
