5:31 am
celebration for benjamin netanyahu. the main rivals to likud, the centerleft design is union had taken 24 seats. netanyahu says he hopes to form a new government within the next two to three weeks. netanyahu: against all odds, a great victory for the likud. i spoke with all party leaders and asked them to join me in forming a government for israel without delay. reality does not take a break. israelis expect us to quickly for me leadership and this is what we do. eve: gallagher fenwick takes us through the papers and how they have been reacting. gallagher: all the journalists who wrote these papers are waking up to a very different paper -- picture than when they
5:32 am
wrote those papers. take the how rest daily which -- thehaaretz daily, which said that they were deadlocked. haaretz lashing out at the prime minister, saying that he resorted to race baiting to win the election. we see that he has no intention of ever agreeing to a palestinian state and what he thinks of 20% of the population. they are a danger. they are walking peacefully to their places of voting, and it's an existentialist -- existential threat. the jerusalem post is a bit more measured in its comments, saying
5:33 am
that netanyahu declares victory after a close race. but in its editorial saying, what does this supposedly three of netanyahu mean? -- the suppose it victory of netanyahu mean? it has to be said that the reign of king bb, despite the legion of naysayers both in israel and around the world has not yet come to an end. why is that? according to the jerusalem post because very many israelis agree with their prime minister benjamin netanyahu that palestine is a threat and that iran is not really interested in peace and israel needs a leader that will stand his ground. the right-wing daily, who really campaigned hard against netanyahu, three pictures on the cover.

5:35 am
centrist, the kingmaker. he's overdue looking forward saying that netanyahu is -- he's already looking forward, saying the netanyahu is six ending ahead. his task is to form a coalition. one of the editorials in this paper also lashing out at the media. saying that while the media and analysts were telling us that the centerleft was going to win, the people of israel chose differently. eve: now in studio is melissa both. -- is melissa. a lot of people are looking at a former likud member possibly being the kingmaker. melissa: it looks as though he will be the kingmaker. it will not be that difficult given the number of seats that he has one.
5:36 am
-- has won. he has established a victory that no one had thought possible even 24 hours ago. he has done what he said he would do. huge relief within likud. within the further right party the ultra-right nationalist, the religious parties, they have a good 30 seats altogether. he is close enough to the 60 mark. the difference is the centrist party. he stepped up not so long ago. he had been a very popular minister within likud and went off to form his own party. he had personal issues with netanyahu. and the question was whether he would choose to rally with likud once the dust has settled, or not. the other party that everyone will be keeping a close on that close eye on -- the other party
5:37 am
that everyone will be keeping a close eye on, they have under 20, but still a substantial block. neither party has said what it intends to do. clearly, this question of coalition building would have been far trickier had the results been closer between the zionist unit and the likud -- zionist unionist and the likud. we could have been looking at a national formation government. it's much trickier because he does not have those natural allies that the likud can caps on. clearly, the center will play a part. eve: you mentioned that natural allies are more to the right of center. it seems this push of a security stance really appealed to those
5:38 am
right-wing voters as well. notably, when netanyahu had that comment about palestinian state. how will this play out on the international level you melissa: -- will this play out on the international level? melissa: it will be interesting. michener who made some very controversial remarks about air israelis -- netanyahu makes them very controversial remarks about israelis making their way to the polls. they have a democratic right to cast their vote and the fact that he spoke to that in such a blatant way, it will be interesting to see whether given how polarizing the selection can be, you can heal the divide -- he can heal the divide. and beyond that on the international stage, the relationship with washington is more problematic than ever before.
5:39 am
and finally, perhaps the most important question that has emerged from this, benjamin netanyahu emerging saying that under his watch there would be no palestinian state. that is a huge block to any resumption of negotiations. already, the palestinians have said they will be pursuing with all the more bigger to -- all the more vigor to be recognized by the international community. those divides have given as a direct result of this campaign. eve: thanks for talking to us. the leaders of the main challenger party have conceded defeat. zionist unionist did get the support of many. collect before the -- >> before

the election, few people outside israel knew who isaac herzog was. but the election did not go his way. herzog and his zionist union partner, the dvd -- tsipi livny conceded defeat. herzog: i spoke to the prime minister and conceded. but let's make things clear nothing has changed. the problems are the same. that is why with tsipi livny we will continue to bring our campaign of courage along with the rest. >> his low-key image was an appealing to voters, but he proved popular. his promise of a different kind
