SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria's center-right GERB party won Sunday's general election with 32.6 percent of the vote against 15.27 percent for their main Socialist opponents, according to official results with 87 percent of votes counted.

The results closed matched those of exit polls released on Sunday evening. The election was called after the collapse of the Socialist-led administration in July.
