      No Congratulations for Netanyahu


      Four days after the election, no world leaders have called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his Likud Beytenu party’s victory, Maariv/nrg reports.

      Foreign leaders may be waiting to be sure that Netanyahu will be tasked with creating the next government. The Kadima party was the largest after the 2009 elections, but ultimately it was Netanyahu’s Likud, which was one seat smaller, that led the coalition.
