Benjamin Re-elected for the 5th As Isreal’s PM

Benjamin Netanyahu is set to serve a fifth term as Israel’s prime minister after his rival conceded that he had lost the election.

With 97% of votes counted, Netanyahu’s Likud party and the Blue and White party, led by former army general Benny Gantz, had tied with 35 seats each in the 120-seat house, the Knesset. However, the rightwing bloc that Netanyahu is part of had 65 in total, a comfortable majority.

This will be his Ten year stretch in top office and his 5th year as the prime minister of Isreal.
