Poland’s ruling right-wing PiS party top in EU elections

Poland’s governing right-wing Law and Justice party (PiS) narrowly came out on top in European elections Sunday, exit polls showed, with its leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski urging a wider victory in the next general election. The PiS took 42.4 per cent of the vote to win 24 of Poland’s 51 seats in the European Parliament compared with 39.1 per cent and 22 seats for the liberal European Coalition, according to the IPSOS pollsters.

The progressive Spring party took 6.6 per cent for three seats and 6.l per cent (3 seats) went to the far-right Confederation group. “We won but with a result that should push us to one thing: to work hard before the parliamentary elections this fall,” said Kaczynski at PiS campaign headquarters in Warsaw.
