SEOUL, June 13 (Yonhap) -- A joint exit poll by three major TV broadcasters suggested the ruling Democratic Party (DP) won 14 of the 17 metropolitan mayoral and gubernatorial posts contested in Wednesday's local elections.

The main opposition Liberty Korea Party (LKP) secured only two posts by winning the races for the Daegu mayorship and the North Gyeongsang provincial governorship, according to the poll released just after the vote ended at 6:00 p.m.

In parliamentary by-elections, the DP was forecast to secure 10 of the 12 seats up for grabs.
