Israel’s Final Polls Show Another Election Night Stalemate


The last polls before Israel’s March 23 national vote show another stalemate, with neither Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s camp nor the opposing bloc clearly able to muster a parliamentary majority.

In most polls, Netanyahu’s Likud party -- the country’s biggest -- appeared slightly stronger than before, winning 30 to 32 of parliament’s 120 seats.

Four parties were grazing the threshold to enter parliament. That could have a dramatic impact because in Israel’s fragmented political landscape, even a seat or two could decide the outcome.

The ballot will be the country’s fourth in two years.
