Netanyahu’s future uncertain as Israel elections produce stalemate

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is fighting to hold on to his job after he fell short of winning a majority in the country’s national elections.

With most of the votes counted, his Likud Party is neck and neck with rival Benny Gantz’s Blue and White Party.

That could give Mr Gantz a chance to try to form a coalition government and end Mr Netanyahu’s ten-year grip on power.
