5:11 pm
a respectful and quiet day from all sides well let's get more on this from a stephanie decker who joins us from occupied east jerusalem stephanie you've been there talking with the voices are all did you get a sense of what we're expecting when the the exit polls are release. i think it's very difficult to call because even though we are in a right wing polling station safe to say that everyone voting here is a right wing political inclinations when it comes to netanyahu and whether they want him to continue as a fifth term as prime minister it is not clear what is clear is that he certainly seems to be feeling the heat the israeli prime minister has hit the beach in a suit telling people to get off the beach and to go vote he's just issued a statement in the last hour or so saying that he's had dramatic news that voter turnout is low in likud areas his party areas and the left is coming out in power it's not a new tactic but it shows that he is concerned i think i think going forward there's a few questions ten o'clock to under five hours the polls are going to close you
5:12 pm
will get exit polls very soon after that even if he doesn't win in the sense that gets the most seats he still seems to be the man as you mentioned their best place to form a government it will be a very right wing government but the question is this with the corruption charges hanging over him will he survive the next coming year the attorney general has said that he faces indictments he's got one chance at a hearing where he can put forward his case many people will tell you political analysts that perhaps the pressure will simply be too much on him and he won't but at the same time he is called a political houdini he is a man with intense experience intense charm he knows how to play the political game so i think everything still seems to be up in there when i have to wait and see how the next few hours play out how the polls do and how he's going to play those numbers to his advantage recently where oh thank you so much stephanie zakhar joining us there from occupied east jerusalem what's more so to come on al-jazeera
