Polish eurosceptic conservatives score landslide victory

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the conservative opposition Law and Justice (PiS) speaks at the party's headquarters in Warsaw after exit poll results were announced on October 25, 2015Poland’s conservative Law and Justice party won a landslide in Sunday’s general election on anti-refugee rhetoric and welfare promises, ending eight years of centrist rule in a victory that risks inflaming tensions with the EU and Russia. The eurosceptic PiS led by Jaroslaw Kaczynski garnered an outright majority, according to projections from partial results by local television channels, ousting leftist parties from parliament for the first time since the fall of communism in 1989. “This is the first time in the history of Polish democracy that a single party has scored (an outright) majority” in the Sejm, the lower house, Kaczynski said in a victory speech after Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz conceded defeat.
