There won’t be a majority. It’s not like a US presidential election. Bibi as leader of the largest party will be given first chance to form a government.
It’s always possible that he’s angered enough people personally to lose the PM job. That’s the way parliamentary systems work.
The actual government may not be known for weeks. But Bibi will make ANY compromise with anybody to stay the top dog.
“Bibi may not win if you believe this.”
Something smells... US election? deja vu all over again?
Likud Party was expected to win with 34-37 members, enough for Netanyahu to construct a coalition and a victory of re-election
From your link:
LATEST: Shas ‘praying’ for 10 seats; purported exit poll leaks put Likud at under 30
He’ll be re-elected but his coalition options have narrowed. Yair Lapid looks set to be the kingmaker of the next Israeli government but for Shelly Yachimovich, the third place finish for Labor is a disappointment.
The Likud’s attacks on Jewish Home cost the Right votes. For that Netanyahu has no one to blame but himself.
