Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki expressed his readiness to form a new government in Poland following the parliamentary elections, states the Prime Minister's office in Poland.

"Traditionally, the President entrusts the formation of the government to the party that achieved the highest results. We will create a stable government capable of guiding Poland through various challenges," Morawiecki stated.

Since 2015, Poland has been governed by the conservative "Law and Justice" party, which holds the majority in the Sejm (the lower house of parliament). Both the Prime Minister and the President of Poland come from this political force. However, Polish media reports suggest that if opposition parties unite, they might secure a majority in the Polish parliament with over 231 seats.
