Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rightist Likud-Beitenu party looks set for re-election with a reduced majority, according to exit polls. Leftist parties have also made gains that may well complicate coalition building.
Netanyahu appears to have won 31 seats in the 120 seat Knesset. The new centrist Yesh Atid party was projected to come a surprise second, followed by the left-leaning Labour and far-right Jewish Home parties.
 
Exit polls predict the following:
 
Likud 31 seats
Yesh Atid 19
Labour 17
Habayit Hayehudi 12
Shas 11
Hatnua 7
