Incumbent prime minister Alexis Tsipras, of Syriza, calls rival Kyriakos Mitsotakis to concede defeat
Voters in Greece have given Kyriakos Mitsotakisâ€™ centre-right New Democracy party a resounding mandate to form a new government after results showed it had won by a landslide over the incumbent leftwing Syriza party, which has ruled in coalition since 2015.
Syriza prime minister Alexis Tsipras called Mitsotakis to congratulate him on his partyâ€™s victory in the general election on Sunday, an official of Mitsotakisâ€™s party has said. The official said the handover of power would take place on Monday after Mitsotakisâ€™s swearing-in as prime minister.
