Right-wing party takes lead in tightly con­tested polls

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The right-wing op­po­si­tion DISY party took the lead in par­lia­men­tary elec­tions on Cyprus yes­ter­day, with the is­land’s rul­ing Com­mu­nist party, AKEL, in sec­ond place, ac­cord­ing to exit polls. The polls showed DISY to have gar­nered be­tween 35 and 37.5 per­cent of the vote, com­pared with 32 to 34.5 per­cent for AKEL. Both polls had a two per­cent­age point mar­gin of er­ror and the dif­fer­ence be­tween the two par­ties was too nar­row to dis­cern an out­right win­ner be­fore the an­nounce­ment of the fi­nal re­sults.
