Poland votes, Europe responds


With over a third of votes casts in the Polish elections, the conservative Law and Justice party has claimed victory in the parliamentary elections – the strongest victory post-communist Poland has seen. With the party also winning the majority in the senate, Law and Justice looks set to alter Poland's role in the EU.

In our latest View from the Capitals series, ECFR experts and guest authors examine what the party’s win says about the mood in Poland, and what implications the change of government will have for their relationship with Warsaw and for Poland’s role in the EU.
