Head of the Central Election Committee, Justice Elyakim Rubinstein is scheduled to meet with President Shimon Peres on Wednesday afternoon to hand him the official results of the national elections, Army Radio reported.
Once Peres receives the results, he will immediately begin meeting with party leaders. The president will receive delegations on Wednesday night from the two largest Knesset factions, Likud Beytenu and Yesh Atid. He will hold consultations with the remaining 10 factions from the largest to the smallest on Thursday and most likely formally grant Netanyahu the right to form the government on Friday.
