Poland's governing Law and Justice Party accepted the prime minister's resignation and recommended that its chairman, who is also the identical twin of the country's president, replace him. Chairman Jaroslaw Kaczynski said the party had considered the difficulties of having twin brothers as president and prime minister, but added that it was natural for the head of the governing party to be prime minister.

A pro-business opposition party that wants Poland's troops out of Iraq appeared to have ousted Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski's government in parliamentary elections Sunday, as Poles opted for leadership offering a more cooperative approach to the European Union. Donald Tusk's Civic Platform party led with 40% of the vote after about a third of the ballots were counted early today, which would give the party a strong showing in the 460-seat lower house.

A pro-business party and an anti-corruption party were favored to oust Poland's ruling ex-Communists in a general election today that could determine how quickly the U.S. ally adopts the euro. When Poland joined the European Union last year, it agreed to eventually replace its currency, the zloty, with the EU common currency. To do that, its budget deficit must be less than 3% of gross domestic product.

Poland and the Czech Republic said Monday that they probably would agree to having parts of a U.S. global missile defense system on their soil, and Moscow warned that the decision could make them targets of a Russian missile strike. Poland would allow a battery of up to 10 ground-based ballistic rockets and the neighboring Czech Republic would be the site for an advanced radar system to track missiles. Both countries are former members of the Soviet bloc that are now part of NATO.

Polish voters appeared to take a sharp turn to the right Sunday, with exit polls showing that they had swept out of power former Communist leaders tainted by corruption accusations and had handed an election victory to conservative parties that promised more jobs, lower taxes and clean government. Exit polls for Polish public television showed the anti-corruption Law and Justice Party leading with 27% support and the pro-market Civic Platform a close second with 24%.
