The article focuses on the victory of the Law and Justice Party (PiS) in the September elections in Poland. Having won 155 seats in the Polish legislature, the PiS has moved swiftly to nominate the relatively unknown Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz as the party's candidate for prime minister. Lacking a parliamentary majority in its own right, the PiS is almost certain to be joined in a center-right government by the Civic Platform (PO). According to Business Monitor International Ltd., the election result is favorable for economic reform in Poland. The confinement of political tensions between the PiS and the PO to concerns over the speed and extent, rather than the principle, of reform, leads to expect an improving picture with respect to country risk over the next four years.
