They’re saying that 99.8% of votes have been counted and it stands 60-60.

However the official tally will be released Thursday morning.

Netanyahu will have to put together a coalition of 61 seats. If he can’t than the election will have to be held again.

And yes, it’s ridiculous that the press defines this as a battle between the “far right” and “center left”. Of course the media also portrays our politics that way, they just don’t often use terms like that so openly.
