"The situation is like this: it's not good," New Right leader Naftali Bennett said in a Facebook video on Tuesday evening.

Ayelet Shaked and Bennett pleaded for voters to go and vote for them in the last few hours of the elections in the video on Bennett's Facebook page.

"We're not always perfect, we also make mistakes," Bennett said. "For us to continue our work, vote. Give us the chance."

Shaked and Bennett both stressed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will continue to be prime minister, although Netanyahu ran a campaign which harmed the New Right. "Netanyahu's gevalt campaign is very effective," Shaked said, refferring to a campaign by Netanyhu pressing voters to vote for Likud and not for the smaller right-wing parties.

 "There are expected be 68 mandates for the right-wing bloc," Bennett said. "You want me and Ayelet next to Netanyahu, not Gantz and Yair Lapid."

"Take a minute and put the letter 'נ' in the ballot box and we'll work for you many years," Shaked pleaded in the video.
