Netanyahu’s Likud scores victory over Zionist Union in Israel elections – early resultsIt appears that several Sources are now confirming that Benjamin netanyahu has won the Israeli Election and will remain Prime Minister! According to RT, The national election in Israel has finished with no clear lead for any party, exit polls showed on Tuesday evening. Israel’s governing Netanyahu-led Likud party and the opposition Zionist Union have seen even results, the national TV channels reported.  Channel 10 and Channel 1 said the two opposing parties secured 27 seats each in the 120-member parliament – the Knesset. Channel 2 said that PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud finished with a narrow victory, winning 28 seats to the 27 of Isaac Herzog’s Zionist Union. The Joint Arab List, led by Ayman Odeh, which has emerged as one of the surprises in the election campaign, took the third place in the vote, according to exit polls.  The Tuesday election proved to be a test for Israel’s long-serving PM Benjamin Netanyahu, with the vote having been predicted to be a closely-fought battle. While Netanyahu stayed true to his hardline policies, having once again announced on Monday that he would not allow the creation of a Palestinian state, the Zionist Union concentrated their election campaign on social and economic issues. The results were claimed to be a “great victory” by Netanyahu. On his Twitter account, the PM said that “against all odds” the election became “a great victory for the national camp led by Likud, a great victory for the people of Israel.” After claiming victory for his Likud party, Netanyahu expressed the desire to form a coalition government “without delay,” inviting other right-wing politicians to join. “Reality does not take a break,” he told his supporters.
