Conservative New Democracy and socialist Pasok are only expected to muster up to 37 percent of the vote between them, with the leftist Syriza party leapfrogging to second place, the exit polls televised nationally showed.

The Greek conservative and socialist parties have suffered massive losses in an election marked by anti-austerity anger, with a leftist party opposing EU-IMF reforms making gains, exit polls showed.

Conservative New Democracy and socialist Pasok are only expected to muster up to 37 percent of the vote between them, with the leftist Syriza party leapfrogging to second place, the exit polls televised nationally showed.

With the first exit poll due out at 7pm, across all major media outlets, the country will get an initial rough estimate about the ballot battle that will be waging all through today and tomorrow, the result of which will determine Greece's future as well as that of the wider Eurozone area.

Exit polls in the Greek parliamentary election suggest the two main parties sustained dramatic losses on Sunday. No party appears to have got more than 20% of the vote so far.According to the polls, there's been a big shift in support towards a coalition of anti-austerity left-wing parties called Syriza.

The New Democracy party is in the lead with 17-20% of the vote. Syriza is second and Pasok third.
Pasok and New Democracy have been in a coalition since last November and were expected to lose support to anti-austerity candidates.

The BBC reports there is widespread anger across Greece to harsh measures imposed by the government in return for international bailouts.

Syriza opposes the government's austerity measures.

Exit polls showed New Democracy with 17-20%; Syriza on 15.5-18.5% and Pasok in third place with 14-17%.

New Democracy scored 33.5% at the last election in 2009. Pasok scored 43.9% in 2009.
