    Run-off local government elections will be held in approximately half of the municipalities throughout Greece and just over half of the prefectures, as clear victories emerged in 16 prefectures (including 2 supra-prefectures) with 90 percent of the vote counted Monday morning.

    Results so far of Sunday's municipal/prefectural elections showed 11 main opposition New Democracy-supported candidates carrying their prefectures in the first round of voting, including Thessaloniki and the Drama-Kavala-Xanthi supra-prefecture. Ruling PASOK-backed candidates carried one prefecture, while four prefectures were carried by joint PASOK/SYN-backed candidates.

    A total of 72 municipalities throughout the country elected mayors in the first round of the vote, with 90 percent of the vote counted Monday morning.

    Run-off elections were slated for the Athens-Piraeus Supra-Prefecture next weekend between ruling PASOK-backed candidate Fofi Gennimata, who led the vote with 38.7 percent at midnight Sunday, and main opposition New Democracy-backed Yannis Tzannetakos, who was running at 27.9 percent, with 10.96 percent of the vote counted.

    Independent candidate George Karatzaferis, a former ND member, pulled a hat trick in this election and came in third with a sizeable 13.7 percent of the vote, ahead of Coalition of the Left and Progress (SYN)-backed candidate Manolis Glezos (11.3%) and Thanassis Pafilis (8.5%), who was jointly backed by the Communist Part of Greece (KKE) and the Democratic Social Movement (DHKKI).

    In the Municipality of Thessaloniki, with 7.12 percent of the vote counted, ND-backed incumbent mayor Vassilis Papageorgopoulos clearly carried the vote with 54.3 percent, followed by PASOK-backed Spyros Vougias with 28.2 percent, KKE-backed Agapios Sahinis with 8.8 percent, and SYN-backed Anastasios Kourakis with 6.8 percent.
