Contributing sentiments towards policy:

60% : Jarosław Kaczyński, leader of Law and Justice, tried to ride a wave of anti-EU sentiment: supporting farmers' protests, criticising migration policies, even denying climate change.
60% : From this standpoint, the EU should be governable.
58% : Instead, the pro-EU majority - which has run the EU over the past 50 years - holds.
56% : It should be able to form a parliamentary majority supporting the next European Commission and identify a clear set of political priorities for the next five years.
56% : For what it's worth, Polish voters want to remain in the EU.
55% : Not only is an overwhelming majority of Europeans in favour of non-authoritarian parties, Poland also shows that no triumph of the far right is carved in stone.
54% : From this perspective, these results look likely to accelerate the shift to the right that has already been taking place within and across the EU.
49% : The question remains whether and the extent to which this pro-EU majority grouping will need to accept support to pass legislation, either from the left (such as from the reduced Greens) or the right, from Giorgia Meloni's Brothers of Italy.
46% : These elections boiled down to 27 parallel ballots, so failed to provide a clear direction for the EU.
45% : Even his die-hard supporters were confused about his attitude towards the EU.
44% : Contrary to some alarmist headlines in the run-up, these EU elections have not given the EU away to the far right.
44% : This can only damage the EU's credibility and benefit the new far-right political class among their nationalistic, Europhobic and xenophobic constituencies.
