The data shows that the ruling Law and Justice Party is expected to receive 36.8% of the votes, which means 200 lawmakers in the 460-seat parliament.

The largest opposition group, the Liberal Civic Coalition, was expected to win 31.6% of the vote, which would give it 163 seats.

The percentage of center-right coalitions of the Third Way and New Left, which could enter into a coalition with KO, was estimated at 13% and 8.6%, respectively.

Polish opposition leader Donald Tusk, former president of the European Council, said democracy had triumphed and that the nationalists from the Law and Justice Party would be removed from power.

He said, “I have never felt happier in my life than today with this second place. Poland won. Democracy won. We removed them (PiS) from power.”

Tusk also promised to repair Warsaw’s relations with Brussels, which have been marked by clashes over issues such as the rights of LGBT residents and immigration.

According to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, the nationalists in power will try to form a stable government if the president wants.

He added, “If the president entrusts the formation of the government to the winning party’s candidate, we will try to build a stable government.”

Turnout in Poland’s general election was probably the highest since the fall of communism in 1989, according to the head of the electoral commission.
