Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu tells a gathering of his Likud faction that his bloc is currently polling at 61 seats.

“We are at 61 seats, we will win more and set up a stable right-wing government for four years if all Likud supporters go out and vote,” he says. “That’s our only mission now,” he says.

On November 1, election day, Likud and allied parties need to win at least 61 seats in the 120-seat Knesset to form a government.
