The director of Israel's Central Elections Committee said nearly all of the votes have been counted and processed. In an interview with Channel 13, Orly Adas said the final results will be published by Wednesday afternoon.

The delay, she said, was due to a new method of counting and processing - intended to avoid errors and ensure suspected voter fraud is examined before results are released. (Haaretz)
