New Democracy: 29.7 percent – 129 seats
Syriza: 26.9 percent – 71 seats
Pasok: 12.3 percent – 33 seats
Independent Greeks: 7.5 percent – 20 seats

World leaders have welcomed the narrow election victory of Greece’s broadly pro-bailout New Democracy party and urged Athens to form a cabinet quickly. The eurozone group said reforms were Greece’s “best guarantee” to overcome tough economic and social challenges. The US stressed that it was in everyone’s interests “for Greece to remain in the euro area”. The Syriza party, which rejected the bailout terms and came a close second, said it would lead the opposition.
