21:30GMT: Greek Partial Results Show Ruling Socialists Ahead

Partial official results from Greece’s crucial local polls show the Prime Minister George Papandreou’s (photo) Socialists are leading in key regional races, making it less likely he will call an early general election in the debt-ridden country.
With 11 percent of vote counted, Papandreou’s Socialists were ahead in seven of 13 races for regional governor, including the critical greater Athens area, Greece’s largest administrative region.
Prime Minister George Papandreou arrived at the PASOK offices just before 8:00 p.m. and will later head to the Maximos Mansion government house. A meeting of top cabinet ministers and party officials will follow to discuss the local government election results.
