netanyahu made no concession of defeat he said israel was at an historic turning point in a moment we'll get some analysis on what these results could mean but 1st this look at what lead israel to 2 elections in 5 months. israel's election result is neck and neck exit polls are suggesting the race between binyamin netanyahu head of the right wing likud party and the incumbent prime minister and his rival benny gantz leader of the centrist blue and white party is too close to call. 6 months ago netanyahu failed to form a coalition government faced with losing power he called fresh elections against predictions of voter fatigue voter turnout has been the highest in decades. palestinians who are not in the gaza strip are eligible to vote and they were also out in higher numbers opposing netanyahu open hostility calling fresh elections was a gamble and netanyahu knows it. the election is close i can
5:03 am
confirm to you this morning it is very close i call on all citizens of israel to come and vote just like me and my wife came to 1st i won't tell you for whom one with results this close israel faces the same situation it did in april selection netanyahu and his right wing bloc failing to get a 61 seat majority. extensive political negotiations are expected to begin even before the final results are announced later this month. in the studio now is d. w. reporter maya schweitzer who's reported for us from israel hi my it looks like this result is too close to call walk us through some of the possible outcomes in our years here where well there's a lot to digest the sense neither of the big parties managed to get to 61 votes 61 seats in the parliament on their own what they have to now do is coalition building which means of course your i turns to you what. the biggest parties are sort of 2nd
5:04 am
and 3rd on the list one of those is a secular right wing party called. led by avigdor lieberman this party was in his coalition up until earlier this year when it decided to leave the coalition and that's what precipitated this whole thing really in the 1st place and they have said that they are looking for a unity government now this is not unprecedented in israel's history would mean that all the top 3 parties would govern together however at the top 2 parties are really need to lieberman to do that because they would get to see more than 60 seats themselves they both have right now more than 30 seats in the room those numbers will probably change there's just preliminary the 2nd big interesting plot twist of the night is the joint arab list which are usually down at the bottom of the polls they joined together into a correlation these 4 parties and they have risen now up further in the list in sort of a surprise interesting twist as i said they have never been in an israeli government
5:05 am
for obvious reasons they represent the israeli arabs but israeli arabs are getting rather frustrated with their parties not really being able to accomplish anything so it's it'll be interesting to see who they decide to throw their weight behind either behind the right wing likud party nationalist party or behind the more centrist blue and white party with many guns ahead so some interesting times ahead how did we end up here to elections in 5 months so for those who didn't for israeli elections episode one who helped it was back in 2015 the last election won reelection and formed this very right wing religious coalition with a bunch of right wing religious orthodox parties and as we said the new party ended up leaving the coalition of the beginning of 21000 and that had to do with a ceasefire that was brokered with gaza militants and with the question of orthodox jews serving in the israeli military the. it's been
5:06 am
a big question hanging over israeli politics for at least the last 510 years or so and he took their ball went home and the coalition fall apart so they had an election back in april and they were deadlocked likud was deadlocked with this new blue and white party which is a much more centrist party netanyahu claimed victory they pulled ahead by about 15000 votes but an electoral map that's really 0 and he was unable to form another coalition and so here we are again today talking about the same thing happening basically again let's talk a bit more about netanyahu longest serving prime minister and he'd hope that these elections would break this deadlock but could he be in an even weaker position then he was beforehand there's been a lot of speculation over whether this is nothing that was done to ng this is a question i've been asked before the answer generally has been no however there is a possibility at this point if unity government is the way forward if this is what is decided if in fact i figure lieberman's party becomes the king maker there is
5:07 am
a non-zero chance that likud could decide to unseat netanyahu as the head of the party and this is because the blue and white party has said under no circumstances do we want to be in a unique government with likud we will absolutely not do that and all of this who knows rivals have been very clear about wanting to unseat nuts and you know so his throne spoken a little shakier then it has been in the past but i wouldn't count him out necessarily immediately might just write a thank you for your analysis course. now to some of the other stories making news around the world spanish version is the heading to the polls again the country's kit's hanka prime minister pedro sanchez announced fresh elections after it emerged that no particular column and could win enough support to form a government sanchez's socialists won the most seats in april selection fill will short of an absolute majority elections will now be held on november the 10th.
