Officials from the Independent Election Commission (IEC) on Thursday raised concerns over reports that another 14 polling centers will be closed due to security problems--this in addition to the 431 polling centers already closed. Official numbers, however, have yet to be shared with the IEC, and this is also a cause for concern.

“The security institutions told the election commission that additional centers are to be closed, but they said the actual numbers will be shared only after the assessment is complete,” said Zabiullah Sadat, spokesman of the IEC.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to win a ruling majority in an election that produced a virtual tie between his right-wing bloc and a center-left grouping that would be led by former military chief Benny Gantz.

The outcome, according to almost complete results published on Wednesday, dealt a new blow to Israel’s longest-serving leader, who was already weakened by the inability to put together an administration after an inconclusive election in April.

Unofficial results in Israel's second election in five months suggest it is too close to call, Israeli media say.

Incumbent PM Benjamin Netanyahu's party and that of his main challenger, Benny Gantz, are neck and neck with 32 seats each, the Kan public broadcaster says.

A prime minister needs to command a 61-seat majority in parliament. The smaller Yisrael Beiteinu party appears to hold the balance of power.

Official partial results are expected on Wednesday morning.

“This is a golden opportunity. We have to vote, and we have to vote well. I'm confident I’ve made the best choice I could,” she says, while taking selfies with her friend showing the ink-stained finger – proof of voting.

Sanaa, 38, agrees: “There are those who decided not to vote this time. Maybe they voted for someone who wasn't that competent last time and were disappointed, so they don’t want to be disappointed again. But I believe we must vote. It’s not a choice but a duty.”
