Netanyahu vows to lead Israeli right-wing government

TEL AVIV, Feb 11 (Reuters) - Right-wing leader Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that "with God's help" he would be Israel's next prime minister.

Netanyahu, in a speech to his right-wing Likyd party, said a a right-wing bloc had won enough votes for a governing majority in parliament in Tuesday's election.

"With God's help I will lead the next government," Netanyahu said after exit polls showed Likud trailing Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni's centrist Kadima party by two seats. "I will turn to our natural partners in the nationalist camp (to form a coalition government)." (Writing by Ori Lewis; Editing by Jeffrey Heller)
