Conservative leader Constantine Mitsotakis claimed victory early today in national elections, saying he will form a majority government to break a sapping political stalemate that has left Greece perilously adrift. Mitsotakis' right-of-center New Democracy Party easily outdistanced Socialist and Communist opponents in voting Sunday. However, it lacked an assured majority in the 300-seat Parliament when Mitsotakis addressed a 4 a.m. press conference.

Greece's ruling conservatives on Sunday won a fiercely contested election overshadowed by the summer's devastating wildfires, scoring a victory despite widespread public discontent that gave a boost to smaller political parties. With nearly all of the ballots counted, the New Democracy Party of Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis was ahead with about 42.2%, while the leading opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement, or PASOK, had about 38.2%.

Conservative Greek Prime Minister-designate Tzannis Tzannetakis, a compromise choice in an unprecedented Communist-rightist agreement, began forming a new government Saturday dedicated to prosecuting outgoing socialist ministers. Tzannetakis, 62, was asked by President Christos Sartzetakis to form a Cabinet after a Communist alliance and the conservative New Democracy Party agreed to join forces and support a short-term "cleanup" government. The government will be announced and sworn in today.
