Israel's parliamentary election ended in a stunning deadlock between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's hard-line bloc and centre-left rivals, forcing the weakened leader to scramble to cobble together a coalition of parties from both camps.
With 99.8 percent of votes counted, according to media reports on Wednesday, Netanyahu's Likud-Yisrael Beitenu electoral bloc won 31 seats in the 120-member parliament, remaining the largest party, but down from 42 in the 2009 election.
Some residents of Jerusalem said they were happy to a decline in Netanyahu's popularity in the Israeli society.
"Yesterday was the greatest day of my life, and I hope Netanyahu will drop more and more in the polls," said Shalom Afriat, a supporter of Shas, the largest ultra-Orthodox party.
"With God's help, the Left and Shas will rise and strengthen and a real change will come to the people in Israel," he said, adding that "it's about time to have affordable and social housing for everyone."
Netanyahu may seize on popular frustrations with the ultra-Orthodox community and play hardball with his long-time allies by turning instead to moderate parties, a move that could resolve key issue of peacemaking with the Palestinians.
He has also said he plans to enact an egalitarian compulsory service law and to take the Housing Ministry away from Shas, which represents Jews of Middle Eastern and North African descent.
The ministry, which has been used to build affordable housing for Shas' working-class constituents, "won't be in sectoral hands", Netanyahu said recently.
Meanwhile, Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid ("There is a Future") emerged as the second-largest party in Israel's parliament after the prime minister's bloc, giving the former TV news anchor and political novice unexpectedly strong leverage in upcoming coalition negotiations.
"People wanted a change and the votes outcome is a No to the past and a Yes to the future," said Leonid Spietz, another Jerusalem resident.
Lapid told cheering supporters after Tuesday's election that he wants a broad alliance of moderates, suggesting he would try to prod Netanyahu to abandon his traditional right-wing and ultra-Orthodox Jewish allies.
But that might be tough in Israel's cluttered political landscape of small parties with sharp ideological differences.
