As of now, Tzipi Livni’s Kadima party has a narrow lead over Bibi Netanyahu’s Likud in the Israeli Knesset election. And of course, neither party by itself is anywhere near the 60 seats needed to form a government.
It appears Avigdor [shudder] Lieberman’s Yisrael Beitenu will edge out Ehud Barak’s Labor party for third place. And so Labor’s sad decline continues.
The big questions now are who will be able to put together a majority coalition, and how.
