TABLE-With 74.71% of vote in, main Greek parties struggle for majority

 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.

automatically gets an extra 50 seats to make it easier to reach
the target of 151 seats needed to form a government.
