Transcript for Benjamin Netanyahu may fall short in Israel election
watching Israel, on edge this morning showing prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his opponent deadlocked. The future uncertain. Our senior foreign correspondent Ian Pannell is tracking the latest for us on all that. Good morning, Ian. Reporter: Good morning, robin. What we're looking at is a potential earthquake in Israeli politics. Benjamin Netanyahu is Israel's longest serving prime minister and the dominant political figure of his generation. This morning one of president trump's closest allies is facing the gravest political danger of his career. Netanyahu campaigned on his experience in office and ability to keep Israel strong and secure and his close relationship with world leaders, in particular, president trump. But he's facing a possible corruption indictment and heavy criticism over divisive policies and his campaign looks to have fallen short so the other party led by Benny Gantz neck and neck with the likud part. But Israeli politics are notoriously complex and unpredictable. Gantz could go in coalition with likud. If a deal fails and Israel is dreading this possibility, there could be yet another election the third this year. Michael. All right, Ian, thank you so much.
