Prime Minister António Costa looks set to win Portugal’s general election on Sunday, but might fail to secure an absolute majority, according to exit polls.

As expected, Costa’s Socialist Party (PS) came in first with between 34-39 percent of the vote, followed by the main opposition party, the Social Democratic Party (PSD), with between 27-31 percent, according to exit polls by public broadcaster RTP as of 8 p.m., local time.
