971. 

Who has been elected as the Prime Minister of Israel?

[A]. Benjamin Netanyahu
[B]. Avigdor Lieberman
[C]. Shimon Peres
[D]. Ariel Sharon

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Benjamin Netanyahu defeated centrist ex-military chief Benny Gantz, whose nascent Blue and White party emerged as a viable alternative to Netanyahu's decade in power. With over 97% votes counted, Netanyahu's Likud party tied with the Blue and White party, winning 35 seats each in the 120-member Knesset. Netanyahu's victory came amid allegations of corruption against him and his wife. His campaign has focused heavily on his friendship with President Donald Trump and his success in cultivating new allies, such as China, India and Brazil.
