ATHENS, May 7 (Reuters) - Greece's conservative New Democracy party was leading in Sunday's election with 74.71 percent of the vote counted as of 2206 GMT. The socialist PASOK party was in third place, trailing the anti-bailout Left Coalition party.
The results so far suggest the two pro-bailout parties, mauled by angry voters, would struggle to renew their pro-bailout coalition. Party ND LEFT C. PASOK I.Greeks KKE Golden Dem.
