RPT-Greek pro-bailout parties take drubbing - projection

 May 6 (Reuters) - Greece's conservative New Democracy party
and Socialist rival PASOK are expected to take less than 33
percent of the vote in Sunday's election, according to the first
unofficial results published by the interior ministry. 	
 The shock result translated into 109 seats for New Democracy
and 42 seats for PASOK, giving them a combined one seat majority
in parliament. PASOK was beaten into third place by the
anti-bailout Left Coalition. 	
 Votes were counted on the spot at about 12 percent of
polling stations across the country by legal representatives who
sent the results to the ministry via text message.

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