Exit polls from Israel's election suggest Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing alliance has lost ground to centre-left parties.
They predicted a narrow majority for Netanyahu's Likud-Beitenu and nationalist allies. The prime minister pledged to form a broad coalition.
The high turnout is thought to have benefited Labour and centrists,
Netanyahu is expected to seek an alliance with a new nationalist party, Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home).
