The following are official results released by the Interior Ministry with nearly 100 percent of the votes counted and the projected seats in the 300-seat parliament.

New Democracy 39.85%, 158 seats.

SYRIZA - 31.53%, 86 seats.

Greek Solution - 3.70%, 10 seats.

Mera25 - 3.44%, 9 seats.

Other parties - 8.08%, 0 seats.

The neo-nazi party Golden Dawn, after a seven year presence in the Greek parliament failed to win any seats.

New Democracy party leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis was sworn in as Greece’s new prime minister Monday, a day after his sweeping win over SYRIZA’s Alexis Tsipras.

Kyriakos Mitsotakis, has said he wants to see more women take on roles in politics - the current cabinet of 22 has just two women.

He said that there were not many women "who were interested in stepping into politics these days".

"I asked a lot of women to join the cabinet, they were much more hesitant than men to do so.

"The women that we have are extremely capable, I’m sure they’re going to do a fantastic job", Mr Mitsotakis said.
