Early returns showed Greece's governing conservative party heading for election victory. With nearly 40 percent of the total vote counted, the governing New Democracy party had 43.8 percent, and the opposition socialist PASOK party had 39.9 percent. However, several major electoral districts, including parts of the greater Athens area, were not included in the count. Exit polls had projected New Democracy winning with between 40.2 and 43.7 percent of the vote, and PASOK getting between 36.5 and 39.8 percent.
