ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Updated exit polls predict that Greece's New Democracy party will come in first and could gather enough support to form a pro-bailout coalition to keep Greece in the eurozone.
Sunday's vote is seen as crucial for Europe and the world. Although no party appears to have won enough seats to form a new Greek government on its own, the polls indicate the country's two traditional parties — New Democracy and PASOK — will have enough seats to form a coalition together.
They have both expressed a willingness to work with other European nations to stay in the 17-nation eurozone.
The exit poll projected New Democracy as winning between 28.6 and 30 percent of the vote, giving it 127 seats in the 300-seat Parliament. That's ahead of the radical left Syriza party, which is projected to get 72 seats.
