The projections provide his traditional coalition with a thin larger part of seats over his middle left rivals drove by ebb and flow Head of the state Yair Lapid.
Such an outcome would stamp a sensational rebound for Mr Netanyahu, brought down last year following 12 straight years in power.

- Extreme right development in surveys as Israel political decision looms
Mr Netanyahu, joined by his significant other Sara, showed up at his Likud party’s political race night scene at 03:00 neighborhood time (01:00 GMT) on Wednesday to loud acclaim.
