Israel: Exit Polls Show Likud Party Winning

Exit polls show Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party winning Israel's Jan. 22 elections, despite losing ground to center-left challengers, Reuters reported. According to the polls, Likud and its coalition partner, the far-right Ysirael Beitenu group, will likely hold 31 seats in Israel's 120-member assembly — the largest bloc, despite losing 11 seats from the previous parliament. The centrist Yesh Atid party will likely hold 18 or 19 seats, while the Labour party is projected to hold 17 seats. The next government will increasingly be caught between Israel's imperatives to maintain a close relationship with the United States and ensure regional stability while also securing a modicum of strategic depth and stability with Palestinian neighbors.
