MOSCOW (Sputnik), Daria Chernyshova — The right-wing eurosceptic Law and Justice Party won the national parliamentary elections held in Poland on Sunday with 37.58 percent of the votes.
"It is now preliminary to estimate the Polish positions in certain topics which are currently high on the agenda of the international relations, including the issue of migration. We first have to wait for the formation of the government and its program," the ministry’s press service said.
The Law and Justice Party has called on the European Union to pay more attention to Poland's national interests. The party also intends to preserve the zloty as the national currency, and is against accepting economic migrants and Muslim refugees from war-torn countries.
In September, EU interior ministers approved a plan to redistribute some 160,000 refugees throughout the bloc under a quota system.
An opinion poll, conducted by the UK-based Populus consultancy exclusively for Sputnik and published earlier Tuesday, found that 51 percent of Polish respondents opposed the former government’s decision to accept refugees.
