Israelis Vote in Parliamentary Election

Israelis voted Tuesday in what could be a record-breaking parliamentary election.  Controversial right-wing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could win a fifth term in office.

But there's also a chance he could be replaced by his closest opponent — centrist former general Benny Gantz.  Netanyahu  faces accusations  of accepting gifts in exchange for tax favors and using his influence to control media reports about him and his family.

The charges aren't official yet, though.

Netanyahu has denied the claims.  If Netanyahu wins Tuesday's election, he will be Israel's  longest-serving prime minister .

The country's first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion served in the position for 13 years.

Netahyahu was first elected to the seat in 1996 and then again in 2009.  But regardless of which candidate wins, it  could be weeks  before a final decision, since no party in Israel has ever won an outright majority in Parliament.

That means days of coalition negotiations are likely in the future.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
