Jerusalem (CNN) -- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's party got the most votes in Israel's national election Tuesday, but a respectable showing by centrists could slow or halt a rightward swing in the government.

Netanyahu's Likud Beitenu won between 31 and 33 Knesset seats in the Israel election, TV exit polls reported, winning the most, as expected. Jewish Home, an extreme right party with a charismatic leader named Naftali Bennett, got between 11 and 12 seats.

Benjamín Netanyahu, al frente del actual Gobierno dominado por derechistas y religiosos, triunfó de nuevo en las elecciones de ayer, pero perdió buena parte de los apoyos con los que contaba. Venció, pero no convenció. Los electores castigaron su gestión y auparon a Yesh Atid (Hay Futuro), un partido de centro liderado por un experiodista sin pedigrí político y que ha hecho del laicismo su bandera. La extrema derecha logró consolidar su meteórico ascenso al lograr un cuarto puesto.

With less than 24 hours until Israelis vote in general elections, party leaders were campaigning down to the wire ahead of a ballot that is expected to return Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to office.

Analysts and activists predicted on Sunday that at least two women might win outside the 15-seat women’s quota in Wednesday’s parliamentary elections.

“I expect that this time four or five women might win seats outside the quota because several women have proven themselves in the previous House and they have strong bases that will re-elect them without the need for a quota,” said Director of the Centre for Strategic Studies at the University of Jordan Musa Shteiwi.
