Warsaw: The conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party led by eurosceptic Jaroslaw Kaczynski has won Poland’s general elections, ending eight years of centrist rule, official results showed Monday.
PiS scored 37.58 percent of the vote, the state electoral commission said but did not confirm the absolute parliamentary majority projected by exit polls, indicating it would publish seat distribution on Tuesday.
The governing Civic Platform (PO) liberals came second with 24.09 percent. Three other parties also entered parliament, but the left was ousted from the lower house for the first time since the advent of democracy 25 years ago.
