Netanyahu set for return as Israel leader in coalition with far-right

Israel’s former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu looks set for a comeback, with his Likud party and its right-wing allies set to win a majority in the country’s parliament.

The far-right Religious Zionist party has seen a dramatic rise in support, with their leader now demanding a key cabinet seat in response.

Mr Netanyahu thanked his supporters for what he called a “massive vote of confidence from the Israeli public”.
