”The election results announced by the National Electoral Commission are untrue, unreliable, so as not to use the word ‘falsified’,” Kaczynski said on Sunday, after the Saturday night release of results for Poland’s regional assemblies. Of the two largest parties, an exit poll on 16 November had given Law and Justice 31.5 percent of the vote, while Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz’s Civic Platform was forecast to garner 27.3 percent. However, following chronic delays as a result of computer glitches, the official results gave Law and Justice 26.85 percent, and Civic Platform 26.36 percent.
The latter won the most actual seats (179) compared with Law and Justice’s (171). ”We won the election,” Kaczynski said.
”However, we probably won it much more strongly and incomparably more effectively than was announced,” he insisted. Besides the results for the regional assemblies released on Saturday, earlier last week results were released concerning mayoral elections and other heads of local administration.
