Israelis are going to the polls on 17 September for the second time in less than six months to elect the 120 members of the Knesset (legislature), with the vote coming after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a government following the April election. The last polls taken before election day show a race that is too close to call. reports citing Israeli Media that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing a formidable challenge to his 10-year domination of national politics in a closely fought election on Tuesday.

More than 10,000 polling stations around the country open at 7:00 a.m. as over six million Israeli citizens vote for the 22nd Knesset.

Netanyahu happily accepted the gesture, thanking his “dear friend” and declaring it as “historic.”

As 10,543 polling stations around Israel will remain open until 10:00 p.m., television exit polls will try to predict who will form the next government, with the first results expected to begin coming in several hours after that.
