Netanyahu Urges Right-Wing Parties To Form Government 'Without Delay'

JERUSALEM, March 18 (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, claiming victory for his Likud party in a close-call election on Tuesday, said he had invited other rightist politicians to join him in a coalition government “without delay.”

“Reality does not take a break,” Netanyahu said in a speech to supporters after two television exit polls gave Likud a narrow lead over his center-left challenger in the ballot. (Editing by Jeffrey Heller and Howard Goller)
