After eight years in opposition, the EU and immigration skeptical party, Law and Justice party - conservative and Eurosceptic (PiS), is again ready for the government offices in Poland.
Party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski declared victory just after exit polls showed that the party would get 39.1 percent of the votes in Sunday's election.
Meanwhile it showed that the ruling party Civic Platform gets 23.4 percent of the vote, and party leader and Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz was equally quick to admit electoral defeat.
According to preliminary results rendered by Polish TV channels, PiS has received enough votes to let the party form a government alone, and everything thus indicates that the party's prime ministerial candidate Beata Szydlo becomes the country's new prime minister.
Economic and social differences, as well as the prospect of more asylum seekers and refugees coming to the country, has dominated the election campaign.
Beata Szydlo has also promised to give more money to families and pensioners, creating employment measures for young people and lower the retirement age.
Approximately 30 million Poles could vote in Sunday's election, but many young people have said that they see no point in doing so.
