BBC: Greek elections. centre-right Mitsotakis hails a landslide victory but wants a majority
Greece’s conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has won the national election, describing his party’s landslide victory as a “political earthquake”.
His center-right New Democracy party won almost 41 percent of the vote, five seats short of a majority.
His centre-left rival Alexis Tsipras congratulated him as his Syriza party suffered a poor 20% result. Mr Mitsotakis said the result showed Greeks had given his party a four-year government mandate.
“The people wanted the election of a Greece led by a majority government and New Democracy without the help of others,” he said in a victory speech.
