Exit polls show Olmert and Kadima leading Israel election


- Exit polls projected interim Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's Kadima party would win the most parliamentary seats in an Israeli election on Tuesday seen as a referendum on the future of the occupied West Bank.

The surveys, issued by Israeli media after voting ended, gave centrist Kadima 29-32 seats in the 120-member legislature, putting it in a good position to form a coalition government, with 20-22 seats going to centre-left Labour and 12 to the right-wing Likud.

The far-right Yisrael Beiteinu party was projected by two exit polls to get 14 seats, besting Likud.

The Likud point of view appears to have deminishing support.
