Israel, 18 Sept, THE TIMES OF ISRAEL:
With 95% of votes counted, Blue and White at 33 seats, Likud at 32
The final vote count is being updated.
With 95 percent of the votes counted, these are the preliminary (though still unofficial) results:
Blue and White – 33
Likud – 32
Arab Joint List – 12
Shas – 9
Yisrael Beytenu – 8
United Torah Judaism – 8
The parties formerly known as Yamina – 7
Labor-Gesher – 6
Democratic Camp – 5
Broken down into possible recommendations for prime minister to President Reuven Rivlin, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu falls short with just 56 seats (Likud, Shas, UTJ, Yamina).
So does Gantz, with (possibly) 41 votes from his own faction and Yisrael Beytenu.
