Greek elections: Convincing victory for the Conservatives

Official projections show Kyriakos Mistotakis’ New Democracy party has won a convincing victory in Greece’s general election with an estimated 39.8 percent of the vote and 158 seats in a 300-seats parliament. With more than 40 percent of votes counted, Golden Dawn is expected to narrow fail to re-elect MPs in a six-party parliament _ but that result could change. Even in seven-party parliament, New Democracy maintains majority in parliament with 154 seats.

Syriza 31.6 percent (86 seats)
Movement for Change (KINAL) 8.3 percent (23 seats)
