Netanyahu pulls through in close election

Elections in Israel have turned into a referendum on Benjamin Netanyahu, who has served three terms as Israeli prime minister. Polls have shown the race too close to call. It’s expected that whatever the outcome, any party who wins a majority will still have to conduct negotiations to form a coalition big enough to govern in the Israeli parliament, the Knesset.
