Israel set for final campaign day

Politicians in Israel are preparing to make their final appeals to voters before a general election on Tuesday.

The favourite to become prime minister is Binyamin Netanyahu, leader of the right-wing opposition party, Likud.

But his opinion-poll lead has been clawed back in recent weeks by Tzipi Livni, who heads the centrist Kadima, the largest party in the government.

The BBC’s Tim Franks, in Jerusalem, says opinion polls suggest the far-right will make the biggest gains.

He says the popularity of Israel Our Home Party is on the increase.

The party advocates annexing Israel’s settlements on the West Bank, and redrawing the borders so that Israel’s large Arab minority comes under the control of the Palestinian Authority.

But our correspondent says the apparent resurgence of Foreign Minister Ms Livni makes the outcome of the election difficult to predict.

Current Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced several months ago that he was stepping down in the face of numerous investigations into alleged corruption.

An attempt to form a new government without elections failed.

Despite there being vital issues facing Israel – including the fallout from the recent conflict in Gaza – observers say the current campaign has been surprisingly low key.
