With more than ninety-five percent of the votes counted in Israel, the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu looks set to form another government. Although his Likud party is in a tie with the Blue and White alliance led by Benny Gantz, Mr. Netanyahu is likely to stay in power. Tom Bateman has this report.

There were roars of celebration at the election night party for Benny Gantz as the first exit poll was released. His supporters believed Israel was on the brink of a new centre-ground government. But as the votes were counted overnight, Mr. Netanyahu's success became clearer. The incumbent Prime Minister's Likud party appears most likely to be able to form another coalition government with the help of right-wing nationalist and religious parties. He said history had given the people of Israel another chance as his supporters, using his nickname, chanted "Bibi, the king of Israel."

And this is also a denominational conflict because Kiir is a Catholic and Machar is a Presbyterian. And so the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby approached Pope Francis and proposed a retreat for all the representatives of this transitional government to come to Rome in an act of reconciliation and to encourage engagement.
