Polish Election Results

Well the results are in Civic Platform have won 209 seats in the lower house and 60 seats in the upper house with nearly 42% of the vote.

I am so happy. The minor parties that propped up the PiS, Self-Defense of the Republic of Poland and League of Polish Families, have lost all their seats in Parliament. PiS did gain 11 seats but as their partners didnt win any seats they cannot form a Government.

It looks like PO will form a coalition Government with the Polish People’s Party (PSL).

Poland now looks see to be less troublesome for the EU, and their will be a period of cohabitation until 2010, when the next presidential elections are due.
