Israel's Election Committee says preliminary results indicate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing alliance has won Tuesday's parliamentary elections (with 31 seats) but that centrist and leftist parties made significant gains, leading to a virtual tie in the number of seats won by the right- and left-wing blocs. Netanyahu has vowed to build a broad-based coalition government, but analysts foresee little change in Israeli policies on security and major regional issues.
