first_img Share Benjamin Netanyahu has won Israel’s election, and he could easily become the country’s longest-serving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing Lukid party has won the Israeli election, now occupying 30 out of 120 seats in the Knesset.Its main rival, the centre-left Zionist Union, fell some way behind with 24 seats, according to Israeli media.  If Netanyahu is able to put together an acceptable right-wing coalition with other parties, he will have a fourth term in office, putting him on the road to becoming Israel’s longest serving Prime Minister. David Ben-Gourion, the county’s founding father, currently holds this title.  During a speech in Tel Aviv after the result was revealed, Netanyahyu told supporters he had already spoken to the leaders of other right-wing parties about forming a government “without delay”. These include the pro-settler Jewish Home party led by Naftali Bennett, and a number of religious groups. Last minute attemptThe result came as a surprise – the most recent opinion poll, published just days before the election, suggested Zionist Union had a lead over Lukid.  In the final lead-up to voting, Netanyahu started making pledges that increased his popularity among right-wing voters. He said there would be no Palestinian state if he was re-elected, and that the building of settlements would continue on occupied land.  whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekForbesThese 10 Colleges Have Produced The Most Billionaire AlumniForbeszenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyDiscovery29+ Fascinating U.S. Navy WarshipsDiscoveryMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyDefinitionThe Most Famous Movie Filmed In Every U.S. StateDefinition Wednesday 18 March 2015 2:52 am whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Sarah Spickernell Tags: NULLlast_img
