PM Netanyahu seeks record fifth term

Israelis have begun voting in the country’s most closely-fought general election in years. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of the right-wing Likud Party, is seeking a fifth term in office. But he is facing corruption allegations and a strong challenge from retired general Benny Gantz. Gantz, head of the centrist Blue and White alliance, is challenging Netanyahu on the key issue of security and is promising cleaner politics.

No party has won a majority in Israel’s 120-seat parliament, the Knesset, so as soon as the results start coming in at 19:00 GMT today negotiations start on the formation of a governing coalition.
