Politico.eu | Socialists victorious in Portuguese election, illustrated
The Socialists won 36.6 percent of the vote with over 99 percent of stations reporting, followed by the center-right Social Democratic Party (PSD) on 27.9 percent, its worst result since 1983. With the smaller conservative CDS-People's Party (CDS-PP) getting just 4.2 percent, the night was a serious reversal for Portugal's mainstream right.

On the left, the old-school Portuguese Communist Party (PCP) saw its support drop to a historic low of 6.5 percent and the Left Bloc, a media-savvy, urban-based party, confirmed its position as Portugal's third party, falling slightly to 9.7 percent.

Conservatives sweep Polish vote, put EU rule of law to the test
PiS 43.76% of the votes, centre-left Civic Platform (KO) 27.4%, The Left (Lewica) 12.4%, PSL (EPP) 9.1%, far-right KONFEDERACJA 6.4%; "PiS fell short of a 276 seats constitutional majority"
Politico.eu | Poland's PiS wins election, but its grip on power is weakened
However, the party appears to have lost control of the upper house, the senate, and is looking like taking 49 seats to 51 for the opposition; in most districts, opposition parties united around a single candidate. The senate is less powerful than the lower chamber, the Sejm, but it can slow the passage of legislation and appoint key officials -- for the first time in four years complicating PiS's control of the legislature.

UPDATE: The referendum to stop the cutting of parliamentarians
The debates inside and outside the courtroom are therefore going in opposite directions, a situation that is creating considerable political schizophrenia. On a parallel track to all this the discussion on the new electoral law proceeds with alternating speed , with on the one hand the referendum proposed by the League to bring the Rosatellum to a pure majority, on the other Pd and M5s more inclined to a mixed system..
