Exit polls published on Tuesday night showed that Blue and White was the largest party in the Knesset and is followed by the Likud, but it does not appear that either party has enough seats to form a coalition.Well this has been a very disappointing election, mainly because Otzma Yehudit just had to run till the end. I think if Itamar ben-Gvir's smart, he'll disappear altogether from the political scene. This has been a very sad situation.
Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beytenu party will probably be the deciding factor in determining who will head Israel’s next government – Binyamin Netanyahu or Benny Gantz.
