An Unlikely Winner in Israel's Election
9-18-19, 11:00 PM, TEL AVIV, Israel: ForeignPolicy.com—A day after voting in the second parliamentary election in half a year, Israelis woke up on Wednesday to an uncertain picture of who would be their leader. For the first time in the Jewish state of Israel, the country’s Arab Muslim minority could wield some leverage in the political process. An alliance of four small Arab political parties, is part of a left-center bloc that drew enough votes in yesterday’s election to prevent Netanyahu's Likud party from forming a governing coalition. Arab Israelis make up about 20 percent of the country’s population. Now, the coming weeks of coalition haggling, the Blue & White party may become a key bulwark for Former Army Lt Gen Benny Gantz if he becomes prime minister... more here
9-18-19, Business Insider -- Apparently the Blue White Party of Benny Gantz has more votes [one] than Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud Party.

Exit Polls Israel's Second Election in 2019 - TOO CLOSE TO CALL - Gantz or Incumbent Netanyahu?
Israel election: exit polls suggest result too close to call – live ...
9-17-19, 6 mins ago - Guardian -- According to the TIMES OF ISRAEL, Yuli Edelstein, the Knesset speaker and a senior member of Likud, says that the party will stick by Netanyahu. However, current polls suggest that neither Benjamin Netanyahu [Likud] nor Benny Gantz [Blue & White] will likely have enough seats and allies to form a 61-seat majority. A national unity government is possible but unlikely as long as Netanyahu is Likud leader because Gantz has ruled out joining a government with Netanyahu. More here

9-19-19, I posted an update this morning ... no ... Prime Minister Netanyahu did not carry the day this time in #5. He conceded he did not have a majority ... but it's complicated. Apparently the different factions in the Knesset and Pres Rivlin must decide who to join with to give a majority of 61 members. So far Gantz, Blue & White has 33, and Likud, Bibi only 31. Long way to go before the government is settled. Bibi offered to have some sort of unity govt ... but Gantz not in favor.
