#Breaking: Just in - Netanyahu and Gantz tied at 36 seats each, @newsisrael13 exit poll shows. #IsraelElections2019
To be clear these are just the ballots counted in foreign countries! The ballots in #Israel will be counted now. So Gantz has nothing to declare victory right now. First clear exit polls over 40 minutes.
#Update: Just in - With more of the votes being counted in #Israel it seems like Lukid party is jumping a little bit ahead of the Blue and White party! #IsraelElections2019

At Likud HQ as exit polls come in
So far early exit polls have Gantz ahead in three of them and tied in one other. At least in one poll (ch.12) Gantz is leading by 4 seats and the 2 blocs 60-60. According to ch.13 tie and right-wing with 66 seats. Widely disparate results. But not a great night for Bibi so far.
So far the pollsters are losing. To be fair, it is a nightmarish election to call with 2 parties running neck-and-neck and a dozen small parties, most of which are close to the threshold.

[#IsraelElections2019 thread] Elections are a democratic exercise in some places, but used by Israel as a tool of exclusion: over 4.5 million Palestinians living completely under Israeli control do not have the right to vote in Israeli elections.
However, Israelis living in illegal colonial settlements in the West Bank get to vote. They are expected to vote in numbers today for one of the many far-right candidates who support illegal settlements, or who call for annexing them, as Netanyahu has.
Palestinian citizens of Israel, some 20% of the population, are able to vote in the elections, but they are systematically discriminated against, including on issues of political representation.
