Exit polls indicate the right-wing front-runner has won the most votes in Cyprus' presidential election, but it is unclear if he has enough to win outright without need for a runoff.
The new president will have to tackle a financial crisis that has forced the country to seek international rescue money to stay solvent.
An exit poll for state broadcaster CyBC said right-wing candidate Nicos Anastasiades would win 49.6 -52.6 percent of the vote in Sunday's election, compared with 25.8-28.8 percent for left-winger Stavros Malas.
Independent Giorgos Lillikas trailed in third place with 17-19 percent and appeared to be out of the race.
Three other exit polls had similar predictions.
In order to win without a runoff, Anastasiades would need to get at least 51 percent of the vote.
