Israelis to vote in key election

Tuesday, 17 March 2015 - 13:04

Voters in Israel are preparing to go to the polls in what is expected to be a tightly-fought election.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces a challenge from a centre-left alliance that has promised to repair ties with the Palestinians and the international community.

Neither side is expected to get more than a quarter of the votes.

Candidates from both parties spent Monday making one last appeal to voters.
