Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has claimed victory in Israel's election, despite unexpected losses to resurgent centre-left challengers.

Netanyahu gave a speech to his supporters at the Likud headquarters where he thanked Israelis for the opportunity to govern for a third term.

"I am proud to be your prime minister....and I want to carry forward changes, and in order to do that we need to construct a wide government, which I've started to do already," he said.

Jerusalem (CNN) -- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's party got the most votes in Israel's national election Tuesday, but a respectable showing by centrists could slow or halt a rightward swing in the government.

Netanyahu's Likud Beitenu won between 31 and 33 Knesset seats in the Israel election, TV exit polls reported, winning the most, as expected. Jewish Home, an extreme right party with a charismatic leader named Naftali Bennett, got between 11 and 12 seats.

Benjamín Netanyahu, al frente del actual Gobierno dominado por derechistas y religiosos, triunfó de nuevo en las elecciones de ayer, pero perdió buena parte de los apoyos con los que contaba. Venció, pero no convenció. Los electores castigaron su gestión y auparon a Yesh Atid (Hay Futuro), un partido de centro liderado por un experiodista sin pedigrí político y que ha hecho del laicismo su bandera. La extrema derecha logró consolidar su meteórico ascenso al lograr un cuarto puesto.

With less than 24 hours until Israelis vote in general elections, party leaders were campaigning down to the wire ahead of a ballot that is expected to return Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to office.

The vote on Tuesday is widely expected to usher in a government which will swing further to the right, whittling away at the chances of a peace deal with the Palestinians and raising the prospect of greater diplomatic isolation for Israel.

Israel's elections have aroused minimal interest from Middle Eastern states who once scrutinized such votes for clues about the fate of the so-called peace process.

Whether they endorsed US-backed negotiations with the Palestinians or were out to sabotage them, regional powers would see Israeli polls at least as significant straws in the wind.

Israel will withhold tax revenues from the Palestinian administration until at least March, in response to the Palestinians' bid for statehood at the UN, Israel's foreign minister says.

Under current peace deals, Israel collects about $100 million every month in duties on behalf of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the occupied West Bank. That money is primarily used to pay public sector salaries.

"The Palestinians can forget about getting even one cent in the coming four months, and in four months' time we will decide how to proceed"
