Portugal election: Socialists win without outright majority

Portugal's Prime Minister Antonio Costa has won re-election, however he has no outright majority in parliament.

With over half of the votes counted so far, his Socialist party led with 36.7% and will have to form a minority government.

Mr Costa said he was delighted with the result and added that voters had shown they wanted stability.

The party's rival, the centre-right Social Democratic Party, has come in second place.
