Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu Likely to Win Re-election

With nearly all of the votes counted, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is likely to win a fifth term in office.

It's a tight race between the controversial right-wing PM and his closest opponent, centrist former general Benny Gantz.  Both candidates claimed victory in Tuesday's election.

But it's too close to call.

So, when all of the ballots are counted, Israel's president will  have to pick  which party leader he thinks would be more successful putting together a majority in Parliament.  And that's probably going to be Netanyahu.

Leaders from five right-wing parties  pledged their support  for him Wednesday morning, which would give him as many as 65 seats in Israel's 120-member Parliament.  If he wins re-election, Netanyahu will be Israel's  longest-serving prime minister .

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

Netanyahu was first elected to the seat in 1996 and then again in 2009.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
