Netanyahu Wins Israel’s Election
Intercessors, you prayed for Netanyahu during Israel’s election. Now he has emerged as the new Prime Minister. Let’s continue to pray for him.
From The Jerusalem Post. Former prime minister and Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu is poised to become Israel’s next prime minister, according to the counting of almost all of the ballots. By Wednesday afternoon, Netanyahu held his lead with more than 80 percent of the votes counted across the country.
Arab party Balad was originally said to be close to crossing the threshold but by Wednesday afternoon that option seemed to dissipate. Had it happened, Netanyahu’s bloc would have potentially dropped to 60 seats, one short of a coalition majority. Likud had sent an urgent letter to the police commissioner on Tuesday night demanding that allegations of voter fraud in the Arab sector be immediately investigated.
According to the exit polls on Tuesday night, Netanyahu’s bloc, which includes Likud, Religious Zionist Party (RZP), United Torah Judaism (UTJ) and Shas, crossed the 61-seat threshold and will be able to form the next coalition. …
According to all channels, the Netanyahu bloc has 62 seats while the Lapid bloc has 54-53 seats. …
The victory will bring Netanyahu back into power after serving as prime minister between 1996-1999 and 2009-2021. He is already Israel’s longest-serving prime minister and has spent the last year as head of the Opposition.
The last polls on Friday showed a tie between the pro-Netanyahu and anti-Netanyahu camp, but in the days since it managed to pull ahead. …
Netanyahu delivered his apparent victory speech early Wednesday morning, claiming that the Israeli public has decided and granted him the victory, according to the Israeli election exit polls.
Netanyahu thanked his supporters for giving him and his bloc a “massive vote of confidence from the Israeli public.” …
