ISRAEL: Netanyahu Claims Low Turnout For His Party

The Jerusalem Post reports:

Warning of the rise of the Left, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cancelled a planned campaign event in Ashdod on Tuesday and returned to Jerusalem, where he said he was going to work to “save the Right” and ensure that a right-wing government comes to power following the elections.

“I received a dramatic update that there is low turnout in Likud strongholds but that there is high turnout in left-wing strongholds,” Netanyahu said. “We have to save the Right. There are only a few more hours.”

It is unclear if Netanyahu’s warning is genuine or is part of his week-long campaign to get people to fear that he will lose in order to increase voter turnout among right-wing voters.
