Poles start voting in election – PiS expected to win majority

In Poland, voting booths opened this morning as Poles are expected to give another mandate to the Justice and National Law party – PiS – which may potentially increase the country’s isolation through further tension with the European Union due to lack of commitment on democratic levels.

PiS is expected to win more votes than in 2015, which means it may garner enough parliamentary seats to govern alone. The party described the general election as a choice for the people between a society built on Catholic values and one where liberal order promotes the few and undermines family life.

Opposition parties and Poland’s supporters in the EU stated that the Government undermined the judiciary and the media independence, with the country accepting less ethnic minorities and those with different sexual orientations.

Public opinion polls showed that PiS is expected to win between 40 and 46% of the vote.
