In the wake of Sunday’s general election, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki of Poland made a firm commitment to forming a stable government if the President entrusts his party with the responsibility, despite a precarious parliamentary situation.
The Law and Justice (PiS) party, led by Kaczyński, emerged as the frontrunner according to an exit poll conducted by Ipsos. The poll projected that PiS would secure 200 out of 460 seats in the Sejm, the lower house of the parliament, falling short of an outright majority.
Speaking to state-owned broadcaster TVP Info, Morawiecki expressed his party’s willingness to take on the task of governance if granted the opportunity by the President. He said, “If the president entrusts the mission to the winning party’s candidate, we will try in all certainty to build a stable government which will lead Poland through the difficult reefs we face.”
However, Morawiecki also cautioned that the actual results, expected to be announced on Monday, might diverge from the exit poll’s predictions. “We may wake up to entirely different numbers, and that will create totally different prospects,” he added.
When asked about potential coalition partners, Morawiecki noted their willingness to engage in discussions with parties that share their vision for Poland’s future. He emphasized the necessity of a stable government to navigate the challenges ahead.
