  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Israel votes: Palestinian-Israeli party now a potential kingmaker” – below is their description.

    As vote-counting draws to an end in Israel, The United Arab List, a small Palestinian-Israel party has won a crucial five seats, making it a possible power broker in the fourth elections in just two years.

    Neither Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party or his opponents have a 61-seat majority in the Knesset.

    That means that the United Arab List can now choose whether it wants to work with the pro- or anti-Netanyahu bloc.

    Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett reports from West Jerusalem, Israel.
