A triumphant Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Likud supporters in his victory speech early Wednesday that he would aim to form "a strong, stable government" that would tackle "security and socioeconomic challenges."

In light of the exit polls, the prime minister, who is in the strongest position to form the next government, hinted that he would seek to form a unity government with Zionist Union.

Netanyahu told a jubilant crowd of Likud supporters early Wednesday morning that "against all odds, we have scored a major victory for the Likud."

"Hail, hail, Bibi," Likud adherents chanted as Netanyahu took to the podium on Wednesday.

"We have scored a major victory for the nationalist camp headed by Likud," Netanyahu said.

"I'm proud of the Israeli people because at the moment of truth they knew to differentiate between challenge and nonsense and they took up the challenge," the prime minister said.

Netanyahu said that his government will work to improve on "the most important things for all of us, which genuine security and socioeconomic welfare."

"These are important things for every family, citizen, soldier, and all of Jewish and non-Jewish citizens," Netanyahu said. "You are all important, and you are all important to me."

"Now we must form a strong, stable government that will know how to uphold security and socioeconomic wellbeing."
