Greek conservatives lead in national election-exit poll
ATHENS (Reuters) -Greek conservatives were leading over the leftist Syriza in elections on Sunday, a joint exit poll by six polling agencies showed.
The exit poll gave the conservative New Democracy party between 37.5-41.5% of the vote versus 23.5-27.5% for the Syriza party, which governed the country in 2015-2019, at the peak of Greece's financial crisis.
The projections suggested that New Democracy was not likely to win outright.
