Jerusalem (AP) - In the parliamentary elections in Israel, a stalemate between the conservative Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his challenger Benny Gantz emerges. According to TV projections, Netanyahu's Likud had 31 to 32 seats and Gantz's center alliance blue and white to 32 seats. Thus, neither the right nor the center-left camp has a majority of at least 61 out of 120 parliamentary seats for the formation of a government. Gantz called for the formation of a grand coalition. Netanyahu himself was sure of victory.
