SOT, Natanel, Israeli resident: ''Actually, I woke up very early to vote just because, you know, I could be the only one that voted at the beginning and then after that I just spent my day by drinking coffee, real Israeli coffee, and now just came to the beach, took a juice and went to the beach and just travelling.''

SOT, Adam, Israeli resident (French): "It is very important to vote today, for us, the French community, so that we give more voice to Bibi Netanyahu, so that he can do his mandate as he wishes to."
Reporter: ''So what has to change after this election?"
Adam, Israeli resident (French): ''There will be a big change that will be radical. Either Bibi Netanyahu will have full power or it will be the left. And we are all waiting this evening for the voting to know who will win."

STORY
Israeli citizens expressed their opinions on the possible result of the Israeli general elections, in Tel Aviv on Tuesday.
Ido, one of the voters, said: ''Hopefully Bibi (Netanyahu) will not be our next Prime Minister,'' adding that this might help to get rid of "corruption."
Another local, Dori, stressed that the current President Benjamin Netanyahu should leave everything as it is, if he gets reelected. ''I don't think that he has to change, I think that the country is in a good place and he has a lot of credit for it,'' added Dori.
"I hope there is going to be a positive change in the financial situation in the country, and also an improvement in the political situation. There are still many issues need to be addressed,'' said Marom, another local.
New general elections are held this Tuesday in Israel for the second time in less than six months.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who failed to form a coalition government after the first election, is now trying to win a record fifth term.
