Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party stormed to victory at Sunday's EU Parliament elections, described as a "disaster" for a globalist coalition of opposition parties.
The patriotic party saw its strongest ever result with 46% of the vote, gaining six points on its performance at the last EU elections in 2014 to finish comfortably ahead of its rival "European Coalition."
Liberal, establishment parties, which formed a coalition earlier this year to fight PiS, dropped 10 points from 49% in 2014 to 39% at the ballot box Sunday, according to Polish media.
This is actually a disaster to opposition.— Wojciech Kość (@WojciechKosc) May 27, 2019

Wojciech Kość, who writes about Poland for outlets including Politico EU, said the results are "actually a disaster [for the] opposition" considering how the "joint effort of five parties" had enjoyed the "support of major media" as well as "four years of code red anti-PiS alert."
Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany's international public broadcaster, said European Coalition was "preparing to fight" Poland's anti-mass migration government as it reportedon the acquisition of a major media group in the country by interests backed by the billionaire financier George Soros.
Providing analysis of the election results, political scientist Marcin Palade said he believes an LGBT march which took place in Gdansk on Saturday may have motivated many conservative-minded voters to turn out at the polls for PiS.
