Poland's centre right party, Civic Platform, led by current prime minister Donald Tusk, have won a new four year term. Tusk becomes the first prime minister in Poland to win a second consecutive term since the fall of Communism in 1989.
At present, 93% of the votes in yesterday's election have been counted, with Tusk's Civic Platform securing 39% of the votes, compared to 30% of votes going to the nationalist-conservative Law and Justice party led by Jaroslaw Kaczynski. Following that projection, Civic Platform look set to win 206 out of 460 seats in the lower chamber (Sejm).
Currently, Civic Platform is in a coalition with the Peasants Party, described by Presidential Minister Slawomir Nowak as "the most proven and credible" partner to form the next coaltion, ensuring a majority in the Sejm. The Peasants Party won 8.6% of the vote.
