JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid stopped short of conceding Tuesday’s election, saying he will wait until final results were in after exit polls predicted a loss for his camp and a comeback for former premier Benjamin Netanyahu.

“We have no intention to stop,” Lapid told his supporters at his centrist There is a Future party headquarters. “We will continue to fight for Israel to be a Jewish and democratic, liberal and progressive state,” Lapid said. (Reporting by Maayan Lubell; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
