Exit polls showed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu falling short of securing an outright majority of parliament in the country’s election Tuesday, raising the chances of a potential unity government.
The exit polls posted by Israel’s three major TV stations showed challenger Benny Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party with a slight edge over Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party, The Associated Press reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
Gantz held a narrow edge in two exit polls while Netanyahu and him were tied in a third, The New York Times noted. None of the surveys showed either men with a governing majority.
According to the AP, a unity government would involve all three parties.
Netanyahu’s future role in the government is unclear.
