Besides France and Greece four other European countries are held elections Sunday. and today Here is a quick look at them:
SERBIA: Polls show pro-European Union candidate Boris Tadic and nationalist opponent Tomislav Nikolic are headed for a presidential runoff, while the ruling pro-Western party is likely to form the next coalition government. The outcomes could affect Serbiaís relations with the EU as well as Kosovo.
GERMANY: Exit polls show voters in Germanyís northernmost state have likely ousted a governing center-right government made up of the same parties as the federal coalition, a blow to Chancellor Angela Merkel. About 2.24 million people were eligible to vote in Schleswig-Holstein state.
ITALY: Itís the nationís first election since Premier Mario Monti was tapped to save Italy from its debt crisis. The vote could gauge public anger against parties supporting his austerity measures. Some 9.5 million Italians were eligible to vote Sunday and today for 942 city councils and mayorships.
ARMENIA: Some 2.5 million Armenians are eligible to vote for a new parliament. President Serge Sarkisianís Republican Party was expected to win, but it wants the majority in the 131-seat parliament to avoid having to form a coalition. Results were expected today.
