Still Unclear If Law and Justice Can Govern Poland Alone

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Most of the results are in for Poland's parliamentary election but the country is still waiting to learn if the winning right-wing Law and Justice party has secured a majority in the lower house of parliament.

The state election commission is to announce Tuesday afternoon how many seats each of the parties will get.

With a majority in the 460-seat body, the party would be in a position to push through its program faster and without concessions to a coalition partner.

If it falls short of a majority, the formation of a new government could take longer, and create greater political uncertainty.

Law and Justice, which mixes conservative Catholic values with vows to help the disadvantaged, won 37.6 percent of the votes in Sunday's voting.
