Athens (AFP) - 17:46 GMT - Summary so far - Radical leftwing party Syriza has won Greece's general election in a victory that could impact the course of austerity in Europe, exit polls show.
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The anti-bailout Syriza party has won a decisive victory in Greece's national elections, according to projections by state-run TV's exit poll, in a historic first for a radical left-wing party in Greece.
By Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's UK Independence Party could do a deal with Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives after May's election if its demands over a referendum on membership in the European Union are met, its leader, Nigel Farage, said on Sunday. Many polls show both the right-leaning Conservatives and the opposition Labour party will struggle to win an outright majority. Cameron, whose party has ruled in coalition with the Liberal Democrats since 2010, has promised to renegotiate Britain's ties with the 28-nation EU, then hold a referendum by 2017 on remaining a member, if he is re-elected. Farage said it would be unlikely the anti-EU UKIP, who won last year's European elections in Britain and have two representatives in the British parliament, would go into a formal coalition.
Radical leftwing party Syriza won Greece's general election on Sunday in a victory that could impact the course of austerity in Europe, exit polls showed. Syriza took between 35.5 percent and 39.5 percent of the vote, according to the polls, compared to between 23 percent and 27 percent for the conservative New Democracy party. If the result is confirmed, Syriza's 40-year-old leader Alexis Tsipras could become Greece's youngest prime minister in 150 years.
