Netanyahu Wins Majority of Knesset Seats in Third Round of ‘Israeli’ Elections
By Staff, Agencies
Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed victory in the occupation entity’s general election after exit polls put his Likud party ahead of its main rival Benny Gantz with a narrow lead.
Media projections gave Netanyahu’s right-wing party 36 or 37 seats while Gantz’s Blue and White achieved 33 seats.
Based on the exit polls, Likud and like-minded parties combined could win 60 of Knesset’s 120-seats, only one short of a majority.
The Monday election was the Zionist entity’s third round in less than a year. Netanyahu, who has been indicted in a corruption scandal, had failed to secure a governing majority in the elections held in April and September, last year.
