S. Korea vote shows tight race after Sewol tragedy

SEOUL--Exit polls in South Korean local elections Wednesday signaled the tightest of contests in a ballot seen as a referendum on President Park Geun-hye's handling of the April ferry disaster that killed about 300 people.

The polls issued by three major TV stations after voting ended forecast that Park's ruling Saenuri party and the main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy would each win five of the 17 main races for metropolitan mayors and provincial governors.

Seven of the contests were too close to call, with final results only expected late in the night or Thursday morning.
