ATHENS (Reuters) - Cyprus's ruling conservatives held a slim lead in Sunday's parliamentary elections, an exit poll by state television showed after the end of voting.

The right-wing Democratic Rally party was expected to poll anything between 29.5 and 32.5 percent of the vote, followed by Communist AKEL with 26.5 and 29.5 percent, the exit poll by the state-run Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation said. It was based on 70 percent of exit poll respondents being counted.
