TEL AVIV--After Israel's parliamentary elections yesterday, Israeli televsion broadcasters predicted the Labor Party would lose substantial support in the Israeli parliament to the right-wing Likud Party.

The broadcast predicted that the Labor Party, which has controlled the coalition governing Israel since its independence in 1948, would pick up 44 seats in the 120 seat Parliament, while Likud would win 44 seats and the remaining seats would be distributed among the 20 other parties running in the election.

If the projections are accurate, Likud would be in a position to form the first coalition government without the Labor Party, now headed by former Defense Minister Shimon Peres, in Israeli history.

Final returns from the estimated 2.2 million voters are not expected until later today.
