Minnesota? Meet Israel. The polls are closed in Israel, but no one knows who won! Both main contenders are claiming victory. Tzipi Livni, who leads the centrist Kadima party has called on her main opponent Binyamin Netanyahu, of the right-wing Likud Party, to join her in a national unity government. For more on these developments, we are joined by the BBC's Robin Lustig in Jerusalem.
