The Greek media is reporting on some early exit polls. This shows that it is very close between New Democracy and Syriza:
New Democracy: 27.5% to 30.5%
Syriza: 27% to 30%
Pasok: 10 to 12%
The 1st place party gets a 50 seat bonus (out of 300 total seats) and the parties split the remaining seats by the percent of the vote (excluding all parties with less than 3% of the vote).
If ND wins, they will probably form a government with Pasok (it would be close with the 50 seat bonus). However if Syriza wins, no one knows.
