Exit polls in the Polish elections show that the PiS party is ahead, although it does not seem enough to form a new government. That path now seems open to the liberal opposition led by former leader Donald Tusk.
The ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party remains the largest party in Poland, according to the exit poll after Sunday’s elections, but does not achieve a majority. According to the Ipsos poll, the PIS receives 36.8 percent of the votes.
The pro-European opposition parties, including the liberal Civic Coalition (KO, 31.6 percent) of former Prime Minister Tusk, will have a majority according to the exit poll. So they could form the next government together. “This is the end of the PiS government,” Tusk responded to the poll.
The Polish parliament has 460 seats. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s PIS would take 200 of these, according to the poll. The KO would have 163 seats.
