Earlier this week, in a race to become Israel's next prime minister, Kadima leader Tzipi Livni eked out a victory by one seat (with 28) ahead of Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party (27 seats).
Surprising many, Yisrael Beiteinu, a right-wing party led by Avigdor Lieberman – who has called on anti-Zionist Haredim and Israeli Arabs to sign loyalty oaths to the Jewish state or lose their right to vote – came in third with 15 seats ahead Ehud Barak and the Labour party (13 seats).
Both Kadima and Likud have been scrambling to garner support from other political parties in hopes of forming a unity government and the question remains: Who will serve as Israel's leader?
It's most likely that Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel is our home) will align with Likud, but until Israeli President Shimon Peres decides which party should be chosen to form a governing coalition, we can only speculate who will end up on top.
Eretz Nehederet, a popular Israeli comedy show, aired a skit that portrayed Livni and Netanyahu competing for Lieberman's support. This is so exaggerated, but it's hilarious.
