As it happened: Election in Greece

Key points

  • A pro-bailout party, New Democracy, seems set for victory by a slim margin in Greece's election
  • New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras has called for a national salvation government
  • New Democracy's likely main partner, Pasok, has called for radical leftists Syriza to be included
  • Syriza came second on an anti-bailout platform and seems unlikely to join a new government
  • Germany continues to insist Greece must abide by the terms of its international bailouts
  • All times in BST (GMT: -1 hour, Greek time: +2 hours)
