Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu celebrated “a great victory” for himself and his Likud Party shortly after early exit polls were released following Tuesday’s election.
“Against all odds, a great victory for the Likud, for the nationalist camp led by the Likud, and for the people of Israel,” Netanyahu said in a statement on his Facebook page.
Netanyahu performed much better than expected after facing months-long attacks from his political opponents. His party is now expected to lead the charge in forming a new government.
