ATHENS (Reuters) – Greek opposition conservatives held a strong lead over ruling leftist Syriza in snap elections on Sunday, a joint exit poll by five private TV stations showed.
The exit poll gave the New Democracy conservative party between 38 and 42 percent of the vote compared to 26.5-30.5 percent for the leftist Syriza, which came to power in 2015.
