Ahead of Israeli Election, Prospective Voters Voice Opinions (VIDEO)
According to final polls ahead of Israel’s national election on Tuesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is inching closer to garnering the support of 61 parliamentarians, which would allow him to form a right-wing government. Three separate polls showed Netanyahu and his “natural” political allies together garnering 59, 58 and 57 seats, respectively, in the 120-member legislature.
If so, it is almost certain that Netanyahu will be tasked with forming the next coalition, although he might still require the backing of former defense minister Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beitenu party, or, perhaps, entice members of the centrist Blue and White list – which is running neck-and-neck with the premier’s Likud party – to defect.
Notably, the Likud has in the past two elections outperformed predictions by pollsters.
The Media Line traversed Israel to allow prospective voters to voice their opinions on the matter.
