JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- Exit polls in Israel on Tuesday showed a bloc of right-wing parties winning between 61 and 62 seats in the country's 120-member parliament, potentially enough for a governing majority.
The center-left bloc was forecast to win between 58 and 59 seats.
"(Netanyahu's) Likud-Beitenu won the election and Benjamin Netanyahu will be prime minister," Likud cabinet minister Gideon Saar told reporters after the exit polls were broadcast by Israeli television stations.
