The Zionist Union rejected conjecture that the results of exit polls following Tuesday's election show that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will form the next coalition.
"The Likud continues to err. The right-wing bloc has gotten smaller.

All of the spin and the commentary is too early. We have formed a negotiating team with the goal of putting together a coalition led by [Zionist Union leader Isaac] Herzog.
