Nearly all of the votes have been counted and Likud appears to have garnered 30 out of 120 seats in Parliament. That's good news for this voter.

(Voter) "I'm very happy that we have a right wing Knesset. I expect them to keep on keeping us safe."

Netanyahu still has to form a coalition government and is expected to look to his nationalist and ultra-Orthodox allies.

Ahead of the elections, he promised to not form a Palestinian state, which could force the Palestinians to pursue war crimes charges against Israel.
