Well, it appears that voter turnout was the lowest in Israel’s history. With results in from 50 percent of the polling stations, Kadima was winning 28 seats, Labor 20 and Likud 12.
Olmert took over the Kadima party after Sharon suffered a stroke in January. Traditionally, the leader of the largest party is asked first to try to form a ruling coalition. Whether Olmert chooses to form a government with dovish parties or more hardline factions could determine his ability to carry out his plan.
What is his plan? He is for new peace talks with Muslim enemies of civilization and is prepared to uproot more Jewish neighborhoods in the “West Bank” and allowing palestinians to have their kleptocratic state.
