If Polish President Andrzej Duda entrusts the Law and Justice (PiS) party with the task of forming a government, the coalition will try to establish a stable cabinet, acting Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki stressed on Sunday evening in response to the preliminary results of Poland’s parliamentary elections.

Mateusz Morawiecki noted after the forecast was announced on election day: “If the president entrusts the candidate of the winning formation with the task, we will certainly try to form a stable government.” However, the politician also warned that the final results must be awaited. “We could wake up tomorrow with completely different numbers. Maybe PiS will have 212 MPs instead of 200, and that will create a very different perspective,” he added.

Based on data from the poll on election day, PiS received 36.8 percent of the vote, while the main opposition force, the Civic Coalition (KO), received 31.6 percent. In the 460-seat lower house, PiS would have 200 seats, KO 163 seats, the Third Way coalition (Trzecia Droga) 55 seats, the New Left (Nowa Lewica, NL) 30 seats, and Confederation Liberty and Independence (Konfederacja), an alliance of national radical and neoliberal parties, 12 seats.

KO President Donald Tusk has said he will not begin coalition talks with the other opposition leaders until the final results are known.

Polish President Andrzej Duda emphasized last week that, as is political tradition in Poland,

he would give the task of forming a government after the elections to the winning party.

According to the Polish National Election Commission (PKW), election results are expected on Tuesday.

Balázs Orbán, the Prime Minister’s Political Director, made no secret of the fact that the Hungarian governing parties are looking forward to the results of the Polish elections as much as they are to their own.

“The terrible events of the recent past also show that we live in an age of danger. So it makes a difference whether the pro-immigration, globalist forces come to power or whether the national-sovereign PiS can form a government in Poland,” the politician wrote on his Facebook page.

In the fight against illegal migration, Poles are one of our most important allies,

and we hope that this will not change on Sunday,” he added.

Csaba Dömötör, Parliamentary State Secretary in the Prime Minister’s Office, highlighted in his video clip

the striking parallels between Hungary and Poland in terms of the shameless attempts by Western politicians to support opposition parties of their choice ahead of parliamentary elections.

Thus, he mentioned that the European Parliament put the Polish “problems” on the agenda shortly before the elections. Moreover, the leader of the European People’s Party described the Polish governing parties as formations “to be defeated,” and the President of the European Commission expressed her hope to be allowed to negotiate with the leader of the opposition as head of government soon. Other issues discussed included George Soros’s policy of buying media in Poland, support for NGOs by American Action for Democracy, and the withholding of EU funds as a means of exerting political pressure.

“In recent weeks, Brussels has done everything to bring Donald Tusk to power,” said Balázs Hidvéghi, Fidesz MEP.

However, it is crucial for the future of Europe that the right-wing ‘Law and Justice’ (PiS) party wins the election.

This will further strengthen the Central European alliance that can stand up to the pro-migration and LGBTQ madness in Brussels,” he concluded.
