Embattled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu so far lacks the votes for a fifth term in office. With 90 percent of the vote tallied after Monday’s election, his Likud party and its allies held 59 of 120 seats in parliament, two seats short of the 61 needed for the necessary majority. The opposition Blue and White party, led by retired Gen. Benny Gantz, won only 36 seats.
