"[Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu lost today the legitimacy to rule," Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On said Tuesday, hours before the polling booths were set to close.

In a Facebook post, Gal-On accused Netanyahu of  racist incitement against  Israel's Arabs, slamming it as "unacceptable, even if it had come from a marginal politician, but when the prime minister of Israel dares to call the votes of 20% of the population a threat that must be acted against, when he describes their exercising their democratic rights as if they are an enemy invading the country, he transforms himself into unsuitable to serve in this role,  regardless of the election results today."
