Livni retains her one-seat lead in Israeli election

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni's ruling Kadima party retained a one seat lead over Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing Likud in the final results of Israel's general election announced on Thursday.

Officials of the state election committee said Livni's centrist Kadima won 28 seats and Netanyahu's opposition Likud took 27 in Tuesday's ballot for the 120-member parliament.

The final results for the leading parties mirrored initial numbers issued when polls closed on Tuesday. Official results were due in the coming week.
