Exit polls show centre right victory in Poland


Exit polls after elections in Poland suggest a decisive win for the centre right. The figures, as expected, show the conservative Law and Justice party has taken the biggest share of the vote, at just under 28 percent. The party is led by twins Lech and Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

In second place is the party’s likely coalition partner, the pro-business Civic Platform, on just over 24 percent. The exit polls suggest the ruling Democratic Left Alliance has won 11 percent, down from 41 percent in the 2001 election. The government, led by Marek Belka, has suffered from a series of corruption scandals.
