Official results from Poland's parliamentary election confirm that the right-wing Law and Justice party took more votes than any other group.


   The country's election authority said Monday that Law and Justice won 37.6 percent of the vote in Sunday's parliamentary election. Civic Platform, the pro-market party that governed for the last eight years, got 24.1 percent of the vote.


   Three other parties will also make it into parliament: a party led by the right-wing rock musician Pawel Kukiz, which got 8.8 percent; a pro-business party led by an economist, Ryszard Petru, with 7.6 percent and the agrarian Polish People's Party, with 5.1 percent.
