Benjamin Netanyahu has failed to secure a majority in Israel’s elections, leaving his future as prime minister uncertain.
Mr Netanyahu fell short of the 61 seats needed to maintain control of the country’s 120-seat parliament, exit polls suggest.
Opposition parties managed to secure 60, but small right-wing party Yamina is forecast to win seven and has not yet declared whether it would form a coalition or not.
It is the fourth time in two years that a political vote in Israel has ended in deadlock.
If Mr Netanyahu is unable to form a government, the country faces an unprecedented fifth consecutive election later this year.
