Three-way fight in Greek election06/05/2012 - 17:43:00
An exit poll commissioned by Greek media shows three parties are vying for the top spot in the country’s critical parliamentary elections, with no definitive front-runner and none gaining enough votes to form a government.
According to the exit poll, the conservative New Democracy party will get between 17% and 20%; the formerly majority socialist PASOK between 14% and 17%, and the left-wing Radical Left Coalition, or Syriza, between 15.5% and 18.5%.
The results all fell within the margin of error.
The extreme right-wing Golden Dawn is projected to win enough votes to enter parliament, with between 6% and 8%, well above the necessary 3% threshold.
Official results are expected later tonight.
