Good News from Poland

Two center-right parties have gained a majority in Poland’s parliamentary elections, tossing out the ex-Communists who have presided over a 17% unemployment rate and a succession of scandals:

Exit polls showed Polish voters ousted the nation’s scandal-prone government of ex-communists in parliamentary elections Sunday, giving a broad majority to two center-right parties that have promised tax cuts and clean government.
Projections based on exit polls by state television showed the socially conservative Law and Justice Party with 27.8 percent and the free-market Civic Platform with 24.1 percent. The governing Democratic Left Alliance, which has been plagued by Europe’s highest unemployment rate and scandals, lagged behind with 11.2 percent.
