Amman, Greece's opposition conservative "New Democracy" party has lead the results of Sunday's legislative elections against the incumbent leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, according to Reuters.

Conservative New Democracy had a commanding lead of 39.6 percent of the vote counted versus 31.6 percent for the PM and winning between 158 seats in the 300 member parliament, the official interior ministry tally showed.

The final number of seats will depend on how smaller parties fare. They need at least 3 percent of the vote to enter parliament.

Conservatives are returning to power in Greece after crushing the leftist ruling party, which failed in its pledge to fight austerity.

The New Democracy leader, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, will be sworn in as Prime Minister on Monday, ending four years of left-wing ruling.
