JERUSALEM: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to secure a solid parliamentary majority in Israel’s election on Tuesday but a potential deal with a rival right-wing politician could make him the eventual winner, TV exit polls showed.
After a campaign in which he showcased Israel’s world-beating COVID-19 vaccination rollout, Netanyahu’s political survival appeared to rest with Naftali Bennett, a former defence minister and leader of the far-right Yamina party.
