Netanyahu claimed on Sunday that his ruling Likud party's internal polling showed he was a stone's throw away from a Knesset (Parliament) majority that would allow the formation of a right-wing government.
"Our data from three hours ago shows we are at 59.7 seats," he told supporters at an election rally, referring to his bloc of right-wing and religious parties.
We are very close to victory, the prime minister claimed.
Discussing polling data is forbidden as per Israeli election laws during the seventy hours preceding polls.
