Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won the Israeli general election for a fifth term, Israeli television Channel 12 said on Wednesday.

With 96 percent of the vote counted, Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party won 37 seats in the Knesset, while the center-right Blue Party led by former general Benny Gantz won 36 seats.

The Haaretz newspaper reported that partial results of the general elections showed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the process of winning a fifth term, despite the announcement of his main rival victory.

With 64 percent of the votes counted, Netanyahu is expected to get 38 of the 120 seats in the Knesset, while a blue-and-white party led by former general Benny Gantz, Netanyahu’s main rival, is expected to win 35 seats.

The partial results bolstered Netanyahu’s position compared to a poll of voters after the vote, whose results were published immediately after the vote ended on Tuesday night.
