Latest Israeli polls: Right-wing parties to gain majority in parliament
Latest polls published in Israel less than 24 hours before the elections showed the right-wing Likud, led by Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, holding steady at 30-33 mandates with Labor polling at 18 – 19 seats.
The polls indicated right-wing parties clinching 63-64 seats in the 120 seat parliament (Knesset) with the Left and the Arab parties securing 40–41 seats and the center parties raking in 16-18 seats. These results mean the right has enough to form a narrow coalition government under the leadership of Sharon. (Albawaba.com)
