Even with Yamina, Benjamin Netanyahu's block has only 59 Knesset seats, but his opponents are a highly unlikely mix.

The Central Election Committee has announced the final result of the election for the 24th Knesset. There is no clear winner. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing block musters 59 seats with the addition of Yamina, led by Naftali Bennett. The anti-Netanyahu parties have a total of 57 seats, but make a highly unlikely combination. The balance is held by Ra'am, the smallest party in the Knesset, with four seats.

The full results are as follows:

Likud - 30 Knesset seats
Yesh Atid - 17
Shas - 9
Blue & White - 8
United Torah Judaism - 7
Labor - 7
Yisrael Beitenu - 7
Yamina - 7
Religious Zionist - 6
Joint Arab List 6
New Hope - 6
Meretz - 6
Ra'am - 4

Voter turnout was 67.4%.
