The The final result of the elections in Israel, after counting 100% of the votes, confirms the political deadlock After the country went to the polls for the fourth time in two years. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party has so far confirmed that it is the first party to win 30 seats, but its coalition stops at 52 deputies, with a majority of 61.
The anti-Netanyahu camp sees the secular Center Party, Yesh Atid, in the lead with 17 seats. In total there are 57 deputies, including the United Arab List. The right-wing extremist (7) and the Arab Islamist prevailing (4) did not adhere to any side or the other. The results will be presented on Wednesday to President Reuven Rivlin, who will open consultations to form the new government, but many commentators fear it will end up with a fifth vote.
These are the final results. Netanyahu’s camp: Likud (30), ultra-Orthodox Shas (9), United Torah Judaism (7), the extreme right of religious Zionism (6). The parties opposing Netanyahu: the centrists: Yesh Atid (17), Blue and White (8), the left of Labor (7), Meretz (6), the right of Yisrael Beiteinu (7) and New Hope (6). Netanyahu is also against the United Arab List (6). Yamina (7), and Raam (4).
