4:02 pm
a stable national government i want to make it clear it will be a right wing government but i intend to be the prime minister of all israeli citizens right or left jews and non jews alike israeli citizens. the proven master of israeli electoral politics well aware that his carefully cultivated right wing block of smaller parties gives him the edge in the decisive business of building a governing coalition but across town in tel aviv there had already been another declaration of victory benny gantz israel's former army chief and leader of the blue and white party put together in essence to remove netanyahu from power said he should be given the opportunity to do just that if you want to see winners and losers in elections but we have to win as we might be new but we're not naive we understand we've got to wait for the true results but within a few days will work to calm a government as big as possible but it's up to israel's president ruben rivlin to
4:03 pm
invite the most likely prime minister to form a coalition balancing two factors who leads the biggest party and who has the clearest path to a governing bloc for netanyahu that's complicated by a couple of his natural allies such as his education ministers under threat new right to party hovering around the threshold for a place in the israeli parliament or knesset for a time palestinian israeli parties warning their voters that low turnout could threaten their presence in the knesset as well they complained of intimidation by liquid activists bringing hidden cameras to the polls this bruising bitterly contested election is not over just yet the challenger is raising his arm in victory but netanyahu insists he's done enough to retain the title after a fernet. final few days of campaigning in which he feared to the right from a sing to an extent legal israeli settlements in the occupied west bank and convinced his voters that his premiership was in mortal danger. leaving the. jellied to be ready to leave the baby she didn't. want to seem like it's
4:04 pm
an. injection to get in the right pieces. this election very very no one has another four years of. living. well as harry mentioned in his report there are one hundred twenty seats in the israeli parliament or knesset to get in parties need to win at least three and a quarter of percent of the votes that's about four seats sixty one seats are needed to form a government but no party is ever achieved an outright majority the president will choose the candidate he things has the best chance of forming a coalition this person has forty two days to form a government if they can't the leader with the second best chance gets twenty eight days to try and failing that it can even go to a third candidate stephanie decker joins us now live from west jerusalem so it's
4:05 pm
shaping up for a fifth term from that in the hope where does that leave israeli politics shaping up. it seems to be going further and further to the right sadly certainly almost nonexistent i mean one voter who actually didn't vote yesterday i was talking to at the polling station said in a sort of sarcastic way israelis do have a choice between the right and the right even though netanyahu has campaigned very much focusing in threatening his his support base that a vote for guns would mean a vote for the left the left has become a very dirty word when it comes to the politics yes i mean i think looking ahead certainly looking at the polls it looks like prime minister benjamin netanyahu as you said will be having a fifth term what kind of policies are we going to be seeing you've already seen a shift in policies to the right i think also very significant when it comes to the palestinian issue we are waiting. of the century a much awaited much closely guarded secret what if there's
4:06 pm
a more even more right wing government in place than we've seen over the last few years i mean what are they going to be agreeing on what are they going to be putting on the table so i think these are some of concerns but again step by step i think always very difficult to predict things here we will only know what this government is going to look like over a month from now some people even saying that maybe gansett will be joining the government it's unlikely but if he does it will certainly dilute that right wing adamant but again i think certainly everyone will tell you the politics here firmly shifting to the right. managed to calm neck and neck with. a sense of disappointment. yes i think you could also read into that last night he took a while the first thing netanyahu said very soon against declared victory was the block has won the right wing bloc it wasn't a victory for him and many people would tell you that this was a referendum for benjamin netanyahu because of these crucial indictments corruption
4:07 pm
and indictments in three cases hanging over his head they haven't gone away he's still facing huge pressure he's going to have to face the attorney general in july where he will have to respond to. the allegations but the attorney general has made it very clear that he will he intends to indict netanyahu so i think it is a bruising to his political ego he is however a political mastermind how he plays the game he's a veteran at it and i think many people will tell you also that his why he's also still survive despite these pressures on him i think he's really public is divided certainly with the voters we were talking to yesterday right wing but very much split down the middle whether they want to continue to see him in politics or not some people tell you he may not even survive the next ten months because of those corruption charges but we're going to have to wait and see how those things play out all right stephanie decker from west jerusalem. sudan's president is under increasing pressure as western nations are very voices to calls for
