Official results from ND vote expected in the afternoon


Official results from New Democracy’s leadership election held Sunday were expected in the afternoon a spokesman said Monday adding the party was waiting for election committees across the country to fax results.

He said the process is in line with the party charter.

According to unofficial results leaked by the party, former Parliament speaker Evangelos Meimarakis was the winner of Sunday’s election garnering around 40 percent of the vote. Kyriakos Mitsotakis, a former minister of administrative reform, was runner up with about 30 percent.

Meimarakis and Mitsotakis will face off in a second round on January 10.
