The Israeli elections were front and center on news sites around the world Wednesday morning, with the decline of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Likud party the subject of most headlines.

French daily Le Monde led with a piece titled “Benjamin Netanyahu, less successful than expected,” while Spain’s El Pais wrote, “Netanyahu wins but loses ground to center and left.”

The top story on The New York Times website read, “Tepid vote for Netanyahu in Israel is seen as rebuke,” and The Washington Post titled its piece “Netanyahu is weakened after Israeli elections.”

The German daily Der Spiegel said simply, expressing how some in Israel felt, “Elections in Israel: The winner has lost,” and the UK’s Times wrote, “Shock for Netanyahu as far-right and center parties steal his seats.”
