Netanyahu, 71, wants to form a new government from the right, although polls do not give him an absolute majority

Polls show that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to be unable to secure the seats needed to form a new government in the fourth Israeli elections in two years

The Likud party led by Netanyahu and his allies is expected to win 52 or 53 seats in the 120-seat Knesset, which means that it will not get the absolute majority that enables it to form a government alone.

Other opposition parties may get 60 seats.

This means that the opposition New Right (right) party led by Naftali Bennett, a former friend of Netanyahu, will be influential in forming the government and may preserve Netanyahu’s chances of becoming prime minister if he agrees to an alliance with him.
