BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — Nearly complete results show Sunday the center-right opposition has won a parliamentary election in Slovakia.

The Statistics Office says the governing left-leaning party of Prime Minister Robert Fico was the clear overall winner with 35.3 percent of the vote, or 63 seats in the 150-seat Parliament with votes from 5,644 of the 5,929 polling stations counted early Sunday.

But three opposition parties could form a ruling coalition with an ethnic Hungarian party with a majority of 78 seats.
