After 17 months that he was defeated as the PM, Israel's longest serving leader, Netanyahu as returned as the Prime Minister.

He was ousted in June 2021 after 12 consecutive years.

Conceding defeat, the incumbent Prime Minister said:

I spoke tonight with the leader of the opposition, Benjamin Netanyahu and congratulated him on his victory in the elections.

The State of Israel is above all political considerations. I wish Netanyahu success for the sake of the people of Israel and the State of Israel.

I have instructed all branches of the Prime Minister's Office to prepare an orderly transfer of power. He said

In Israel, to lead the government, a party has to win a majority of 61 seats — the magic number — in Parliament. If that isn't attainable, the party with the most seats has to negotiate alliances with other parties to form a coalition. (Bibi & right-wing allies have 65 of the 120-seat Knesset with almost all votes counted)
