Contributing sentiments towards policy:

56% : “The result should lead to better functioning of the EU where the EU truly reflects its values and principles, particularly solidarity and responsibility,” said an EU diplomat, granted anonymity to speak freely on sensitive internal matters.
54% : “I expect that Poland will become a constructive partner and that the change in government will strengthen its standing in Europe,” Terry Reintke, a German MEP who is co-leader of the Greens in the European Parliament, told German radio.
54% : “German should start an initiative to revive bilateral relations if there’s a change in government,” Social Democratic MP Metin Hakverdi, a member of the German parliament’s EU committee, wrote on X, adding that strengthening security cooperation should be the focus.
52% : “To once again have a pro-democratic and pro-European government in Warsaw would be of enormous importance to Europe, especially in this time of crisis,” she said on X. Rolf Nikel, who bore the brunt of PiS anti-German posturing for many years as Germany’s ambassador to Warsaw, was even more effusive.
52% : EU officials and experts are hopeful that Poland’s likely new center-right government will play a more constructive role in Brussels.
49% : Although the conservative group has the most seats in the European Parliament, its representatives have been driven out of power in large EU countries such as Germany, undermining the EPP’s influence within the European Council where EU leaders gather.
48% : “The rejection of far-right policies should serve as an example to other people, and this should hopefully lead to the EU becoming stronger in the face of geopolitical threats.”
38% : Anti-German sentiment also fueled the party’s election campaign, including regular accusations that Donald Tusk, the leader of the opposition Civic Coalition and likely next prime minister, was a “German agent.”  
32% : Poland’s right-wing government has been a Euroskeptic thorn in the side of the European Commission, fiercely criticizing EU institutions in Brussels and voting against key EU legislation.
