Tel Aviv residents voiced their views on the outcome of Israel's parliamentary elections on Wednesday, with many of the opinion that incumbent Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had narrowly won.
«I think that the chances that [Benny] Gantz would have won enough votes in a left-wing party to form that government was very slim. It was very obvious that Bibi [Benjamin Netanyahu] was most... Еще likely going to win that elections,» said social media activist Taylor Amrani.
Despite the tight race between the Likud and the new centre-right Blue and White alliance, many Israel residents say Netanyahu has more chances to form a coalition government as the country's right-wing and religious parties, which appear to have won more seats than the Arab, centre and left parties, have already voiced their support for the Likud leader.
If Netanyahu does manage to form another government, this will be his fifth term in office and he will be on track to become Israel's longest serving prime minister in July.
However, as the Likud leader also faces the threat of indictment in three separate corruption cases by Israel's attorney general, any new term he may win would likely be off to a rocky start.
Exit polls showed a neck-and-neck battle between Netanyahu's Likud party and Gantz, with projections putting Likud in a stronger position to form a majority coalition in the 120-seat parliament.
