After months of political turmoil, Israel and its embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday looked to be heading for a third election in a 12-month period unless they can resolve a stalemate before midnight.

Chances for a last-minute resolution looked dim after days of mudslinging between Netanyahu and his main rival Benny Gantz, both of whom have repeatedly failed to build a governing majority in the parliament, known as the Knesset.
