Likud: Netanyahu in ‘advanced talks’ after winning ‘definitive mandate’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in “advanced talks” to form a right-wing nationalist government, a Likud party source says.

The source says the public gave Netanyahu “full support and a definitive mandate to continue to lead” and that the coalition will last four years.

“We are going for a full term,” the source says.

Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party is leading Blue and White by some 13,000 votes, or less than a percentage point, with almost all ballots counted, but the makeup of smaller parties means he has a clear path to build a right-wing coalition.
