Warning of the rise of the Left, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cancelled a planned campaign event in Ashdod on Tuesday and returned to Jerusalem, where he said he was going to work to "bring out the vote" and ensure that a right-wing government comes to power following the elections.

Earlier in the day, Netanyahu, went to the Netanya beach and warned people there that if they do not vote, Likud will lose.

Netanyahu did not don his swimming suit and join the thousands who flocked the beaches of Israel, but rather came to meet them.



"I am here at the beach, and there are a lot of people here," Netanyahu said. "But if they stay at the beach and not go an vote, they will wake up tomorrow with Yair Lapid heading a left-wing government."

Netanyahu urged everyone at home and at the beach to vote for the Likud using the slip that reads "Mahal," which represents Netanyahu's party.

The Prime Minister also claimed that "supporters of the Blue and White mark the Mahal slips from behind, which makes the slip not count." Netanyahu then told the voters to "look at the slips carefully before voting."
